The Lord Surya is considered as the soul of the universe according to Hindu Mythology. The Lord Surya gives knowledge, divinity and performance. According to Hindu astrology Sun is the significator of the soul. That is why the Hindu people in India do offer water to sun. The lord Surya is the lord of all the planets on the heavenly body and the most powerful one. The Sun God gives power, position, authority, glory, name, reputation, force and makes one a ruler or a kingly person. If the planet Sun is posited in a beneficial house in the natal chart, then it will make you an administrator.
As per the science the Lord Sun is also the major source of power, light and energy. It is impossible to lead life without Sun. If the Sun sets for a longer span of time, then the whole world will be glacier and there will be no trace of life on the earth. Similarly, if the lord Surya remains on the sky for 120 hours instead of 12 hours, then the whole world will get extinct.
