"The sun holds the earth and the celestial region. The sun is the attracting power of all heavenly bodies."
Taittiriya Samhita –188.8.131.52-4
The shining beautiful celestial Red Ball (sun), the ocean of fire, whose light brings us rains, finds its place in the vast Antariksha – the space. The sun possessing Prishnirasma, the matter responsible for solar energy/electricity and colors got its position in ‘the centre of heaven’ (solar system) and it protects the whole world (solar family) and demarcates the east and west directions within the solar family!
Rig Veda (Rg.5.47.3)
“This earth is devoid of hands and legs, yet it moves ahead. All the objects over the earth also move with it. It moves around the sun.”
Rig Veda 10.22.14
“The sun has tied Earth and other planets through attraction and moves them around itself as if a trainer moves newly trained horses around itself holding their reins.”
Rig Veda 10.149.1
