Wallpaper Description:
In Hinduism, Sūrya (Devanagari: सूर्य, sūrya, lit "the Supreme Light" [2]; Tamil: Suriya; Malay: Suria; Thai: Suraya, Suriya or Phra Athit) is the chief solar deity, one of the Adityas, son of Kasyapa and one of his wives, Aditi[3]; of Indra; or of Dyaus Pitar (depending by the version). The term "Surya" also refers to the Sun, in general. Surya has hair and arms of gold. He is said to drive through the heaven in his triumphal chariot harnessed by seven horses or one horse with seven heads [4], which represent the seven colours of the rainbow or the seven chakras. He presides over "Surya-waar" or Sunday.

In Hindu religious literature, Surya is notably mentioned as the visible form of God that one can see every day. Furthermore, Shaivites and Vaishnavas often regard Surya as an aspect of Shiva and Vishnu, respectively. For example, the sun is called Surya Narayana by Vaishnavas. In Shaivite theology, Surya is said to be one of eight forms of Shiva, named the Astamurti.

His other names include Vivasvat (Sanskrit: वैवस्वत) (also Visvakarma or Vivasvan), Ravi (lit. "the Fire Bird" [5]), Aditya (lit. the son of Aditi) [6], Pusha (the best Purifier), Divakar (the maker of the day), Savita (the vivifier), Arka (the ray), Mitra (friend) [7], Bhanu (light), Bhaskar (maker of Light), and Grahapati (the Lord of Grahas) [8] .
