The sutra
The sage Sankriti once visited Adityalok, the abode of the sun God,
And bowing to him he worshipped him with what is known as
Chakshusmati vidya.
Aum, salutation to the sun God who illumines the organ of vision!
Salutation to the sun who is a great warrior!
Salutation to the sun who represents the three conditionings:
Tamas, rajas and sattva (dark, red and white)!
O Lord, from untruth lead me to truth, from darkness lead me to light,
And from death lead me to the eternal. Salutation to the sun,
The son of Aditi, who is the light in our eyes.
And we dedicate all that we have to the sun who rules the universe.
Much pleased with being worshipped with chakshusmati vidya,
The sun God said:
A brahmin who recites this vidya -- knowledge -- every day will not suffer from eye diseases, nor will anyone in his family ever be struck blind.
The power of this vidya is obtained if it is taught to eight brahmins,
And knowing it one achieves greatness.
