External Things

May the Sun,(1)
at the commencement of yoga,
join our minds and other organs
to the Supreme Self
so that we may attain
the Knowledge of Reality.
May He, also support the body,
the highest material entity,
through the powers of the deities
who control the senses.(2)

(1) In the Vedas, the sun is described as the symbol of Brahman.
(2) ‘May the Sun take our thoughts away from external things in order
to concentrate them on the Supreme Self, and transcend to our organs
of speech and other organs that power which lightens all objects
and which inheres in Agni (Fire) and the other deities who control
the various organs. Through the grace of the Sun we shall attain
success in yoga.’ (From the commentary of Shankaracharya.)
