From the flyer of the book

Worship of Sun-God has been a universal phenomenon. It inspired a relentless philosophical quest that probed into the deeper realities of Nature. From it emerged life-evolving practices of physical and spiritual culture such as the Soorya-namaskaara, Sooryopaasana, etc., which assume much relevance today in bestowing harmony to the tension-ridden modern life. The Sun-God rides in a chariot drawn by seven horses, each with a hue of the rain-bow, and all with white hooves. Such symbology as this is explained in the book, shedding new light on the profound insights of the ancient sages.
