About this title

Synopsis:

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 Dickinson 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 sun 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.
