Aditya Hriday Stotra is a powerful Vedic hymn addressed to Lord Surya (the Sun God). Its recitation ensures good health and obstacle-free life. It is also advocated to ensure relief from eye disease and heart problems. Aditya Hridayam verses are found in 107th chapter of Yudha Kanda in the great epic The Ramayana, written by Sage Valmiki. According to mythology, Sage Agasthya taught Lord Rama the holy Aditya Hridayam and Shri Rama was capable of easily defeating Ravana after reciting the stotra.
