  • Do not offer water to the Lord Sun without taking a bath. Always offer water by wearing clean clothes.
  • Make sure that you do not have any leather goods while offering water. Never offer water to the Sun wearing slippers.
  • While offering water, it is also necessary to take care of the fact that it should not fall near the drain or in any such place where people’s feet are falling on it.

How To Offer Water To The Sun

  • The best place to offer water to the Sun is considered to be a reservoir or a river, but it is not possible for every person to do so. Therefore, the native can offer water by visiting a pure and sacred place such as a temple. If it is not possible to even go to the temple, then water can be offered to the Sun on the roof of the house or from the balcony also. According to the scriptures, if the person is unable to offer Arghya to the Sun in any of the above-mentioned ways, then he/she can offer water to the Sun from a copper vessel or a pure vessel while venerating the Sun while facing east.
  • Water should be offered thrice to the Sun from the same vessel. In such a situation, always keep in mind that whenever you offer water to the Sun, there should be enough water in your vessel that water can be offered to Lord Surya three times. Every time after offering water, you should stand in your place and chant while doing a circumambulation.
