Above is a slOka from a work called SUrya Satakam by mayUra kavi. A set of 100 verses dedicated to Sun. Above is the 80th that concludes describing the manDalam i.e, territory of authority i.e, jurisdiction of Lord Sun.

That is the eye of daksha’s foe. It is not burning away the worlds, it is giving rise to desires, even though it is the vehicle that can take the deserving people out of the ocean of samsara, no wind is able to move it. It is always at rest even while making this world revolve. It appears to revolve to the worldly beings. It can remove all delusion. Even though all these effects of Sun are contradicting each other, the authority, is auspicious to all of us and protect all of us.

daksha’s foe is lord Siva. Lord Siva’s eye is supposed to have burnt the tripuras, and the lord of desire. But as Sun, it is not burning away the worlds, it is not destroying the desire either. Rather, it is actually filling up the world with all sorts of desires!

For those who are striving to cross over this ocean of births and deaths, it is the vehicle to cross the ocean. But it is not moving anywhere or not being touched by any wind. Any ship in the ocean will move based on the wind force. But no wind i.e, marut is not able to move this one.

Even when moving all this world continuously, it is at rest. It appears to revolve. It is not revolving. This is a delusion, but it is capable of removing all delusions!!

All the apparent contradictions of this Aditya manDalam are really protecting this world and for hita i.e, for good or prosperity only.

For original Sanskrit version of the complete Satakam:
