“Akrutrim Chaityaalay in Sun” by Surbhi Pandya
Sun Salutation is widely performed today. In some religions Sun is worshipped as a God. However, Jain cosmology doesn’t consider Sun as supernatural being but regards it as an independent matter body consisting of Akrutrim (self existing) Jinaalaye. Bharat Chakravarti with his exceptional eyesight was able to see these Jinaalaye and saluted the Sun . Science believes that Sunbathing heals skin cancer, strengthens muscles and alleviate depression.
