عنوان مقاله [English]
The celestial element, the sun, whose extraordinary energy illuminates the moon and stars and the human life depends on, has been praised in many ancient beliefs by scholars and philosophers. The sun was praised because of its life giving benefits or because people were afraid that they would make it angry and lose it. In this paper, the position of the myth of the sun in Iranian and Indian beliefs as two Aryan nations will be investigated and the effects of it in the ancient texts of both nations will be compared to reveal their differences and similarities.
