Sun (Surya) - Puja and Havan

“Japa kusuma sankasam kashyapeyam mahadutim tamorim sarva paapghnam pranatosmi divakaram”

The idol of the Sun should be made using copper. The Sun God should be perceived duly seated on a lotus, adorned with a lotus flower in one hand, with lotus like radiance, aboard a chariot drawn by seven horses and with two beautiful arms.

Sun God should be worshipped with the flowers and clothes of the colors of the idol and with fragrance, sticks, deepa, giving oblations, Dhupa, Guggul, etc. The metal of the idol of the planet and the food dear to him as signified by the planet are donated in charity with full devoutness for the alleviation of the affliction.

Maharishi Parashara said that the Mantra of Sun should be recited seven thousand times. 

The type of wood to be used for Havan of Sun is Aak. The Havana Samagri duly mixed with honey, ghee, curd or milk is offered as oblations into the sacred fire and amidst chanting of the Mantras for 108 or 28 times, the Havana should be performed.

After that Brahmins should be fed. Rice cooked with Jaggery (Gur) is a must for remedy of Sun. After the worship Dakshina should be given as per shraddha of yajmana (person performing the Havan) and satisfaction of Brahmins.

Normally the mantras given below are chanted for reducing the affliction of Sun. Beej Mantra is preferred because of its being a potent mantra.
