Bhagavan Sri Ram Overcame Disinterestedness Aditya Hrudayam Stotram

Legend has it that Sri Ram during the course of war against Ravana was overpowered by depression. This dejection proved costly as the demon army began to advance.

Devas (demigods) and saints who were witnessing the battle was puzzled at this sudden disinterestedness on the part of Sri Ram. Sage Agastya realized the seriousness of the situation and taught Sri Ram the Aditya Hridaya Mantra. When Sri Ram chanted Aditya Hridaya Mantra, he was re energized and resumed the fight with vigor.
