YAJNAVALKYA

The Vow of Aditya

Though Katyayani was far younger than Yajnavalkya, yet in speech, in behavior and in all respects she proved herself a worthy wife to him.

Yajnavalkya began to observe all the rites connected with the vow of Suryanarayana very scrupulously. He used to get up long before sunrise at the auspicious time of
Brahmi. After finishing the ablutions and obligatory duties, fasting throughout he would sit in his abode engaged in meditation and japa of Surya-mantra till afternoon. Then he would worship the Sun god and make an offering of paayasaanna. That prasada of paayasaanna was all that Yajnavalkya and Katyayani would take as their food for the whole day.
