Tomorrow is Makara sankraanti, the day when the Sun is
supposed to begin its northerly course, according to the shaastras.
The daily worship of the Sun, three times a day or at least at dawn
and dusk, is called the sandhyaavandana. The Vedas speak of the
importance of the sandhyopaasana.

Meditating on the rising and setting sun, the wise man attains all
prosperity and security. (The Sun is to be meditated upon as)
"This Sun is (a symbol of) Brahman." One who knows thus, being Brahman
alone, he attains Brahman.
