The Ancient Practice of Offering Water to Surya: A Holistic Approach to Health and Spirituality

Water, the essence of life, holds a special place in various cultural and religious practices worldwide

In Hindu tradition, the ritual of offering water - Jala to Surya, the Sun Deity, is a profound practice that integrates the physical, spiritual, and astrological benefits of water and sunlight. This ancient practice not only emphasizes the importance of water but also showcases its unique role in enhancing our overall well-being.

The science behind offering Water to Surya

Our bodies thrive on colours, which are crucial for the health of different organs. This concept is deeply rooted in both ancient traditions and modern science. Each colour in the spectrum has a unique wavelength and energy, which can influence our physical, emotional, and psychological well-being.

Nerves are blue, the heart is red, kidneys and pancreas are brownish, bones are white, and brain nerves are rainbow-colored. The Sun’s white light encompasses all these colours, and when it passes through water, it splits into a spectrum of hues which are absolutely essential for our body.

Here's how the ritual works: 


A person stands facing the rising Sun, holding water in a vessel or cupped palms and at a level where the sun’s rays can pass through the water. When the water is released to fall on the ground it acts as a natural prism, breaking the sunlight into its constituent colours, which then is absorbed by the face and body. This allows the sun rays to enter one’s body, promoting health and vitality.

Tapping into Natural Energy

This ritual enables us to absorb the unaffected, pure and pristine solar energy of Mother Nature and creates connect with natural energies that enhance your physical health and spiritual growth.

Needless to say, Hindu scriptures emphasize the health benefits of early morning sunlight, particularly its role in boosting immunity and overall vitality.

You can easily perform the ancient practice of offering water to Surya from your home, adapting it to your living conditions.

Here’s a simplified guide to adapt this practice to your modern living situation:

First, take bath to purify yourself. Find a place with a view of the sun, like a balcony, terrace, or east-facing window. Stand facing the rising sun, holding a clean copper or brass vessel filled with fresh water with both hands.

To receive optimal benefits from this ritual, make sure you use the water that is passed  through Yami – Jiva Water Device. Normal Clean Water becomes Jiva Water that's full of Life Energy. Since Jiva Water by itself Full of Life, this will help in harnessing the maximum energy.

Raise the vessel filled with Jiva Water to a level between your eyes and the sun, and slowly pour the water, allowing it to flow gently. If indoors, pour the water into a small plate to avoid spillage. As the water falls, it should catch the sunlight, creating a prism effect.

While offering the water, chant a Surya Mantra or meditate on the sun, expressing gratitude for its energy. Bow down to the Sun with folded hands. Optionally, sprinkle some of the water on your head or sip a little.

The ancient practice of offering water to Surya, the Sun God, is a beautiful blend of science and spirituality. It highlights the importance of water in our lives and demonstrates how a simple ritual can significantly impact our health and well-being.

As you incorporate this practice into your daily routine, you not only show your respect to a time-honoured tradition but also embrace a holistic approach to living in harmony with nature.
