From the Publisher:

Life-giver, source of warmth and new growth, and lantern of the world - all people on earth since the dawn of time have praised the sun. Whether referred to as solar Ameratsu, Apollo or Ra, the is revered as the mystical force that created us and the provider that grants us eternal gifts of light and heat, divine knowledge and spiritual wisdom.

Gathered here are the most beautiful words ever spoken in honor of the awesome star at the center of our days. Prayers and song, poems and proverbs both ancient and modern-the words of mystics, poets, saints, and scientists raised in praise of the sun. Copernicus and Dylan Thomas, Rumi and St. Francis of Assisi, Emily Dickenson, and ancient Celtic and Native American prayers: all celebrate both the world and the mystical sun that brings us wisdom, knowledge and insight. Together with a Sun Calendar of solar movements and festivals, a glossary of the world's sun gods, and drawings of sun symbols, their voices are the world's hymn to its parent and creator the golden sun.

"We have come up out of the darkness, seeing the higher light around us, going to the sun, the god among gods, the highest light." -Rig Verda
