Welcome to the 108 Sun salute ritual page. We all know about 4 seasons and each one of them has been celebrated since ancient days.
So how is it relevant today? Well, principles have not changed. We all are still here just because of the light and warmth the Sun is providing us. Without Sun there would be no life (as we know it) here on Earth – no you, no me, no fruits, no plants no animals. Nothing. Would you agree that this deserves at least a bit of gratitude and appreciation from time to time? Imagine bringing a birthday present to your child. And instead of appreciation you get at best ignored or even mocked: “Is that it? What else you got for me?”. Not a nice thing to do, is it? And now imagine we have a similar relationship with the sun.
There are 2 solstices – marking the beginning of the summer and the winter accordingly. The summer solstice is the longest day of the year when Sun reaches the highest point in the sky. And the winter solstice is the shortest day and the lowest point. And there are 2 equinoxes: spring and autumn when night and day are the most equal length to each other of the year.
and a celebration ritual to express our gratitude for providing us with light, warmth and energy.

Invention of the light bulb purportedly took Thomas Edison 1,000 tries before he developed a successful prototype.
“How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?” a reporter asked.
“I didn’t fail 1,000 times,” Edison responded. “The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.”
