Mantra and Stotra related to Sun are chanted. This can be started on any
Sunday in bright half ( shukla paksha ). Total number of Japa of Sun is
7000 but in Kaliyuga, this figure must be multiplied four folds and

Fire ritual ) should be performed in which the Sun Mantras should be
recited for 2800 times ( 1/10th of the total number of Mantras ).

Sun, one should keep fast on Sunday. As per rule, this fast begins from
1st Sunday of Pousha (December-January) month or last Sunday of Ashwina
month (September-October). However, if fasting is to commerce in any
other month, then it can be done from the first Sunday of bright half.
One is allowed to have curd and rice once only for better results. Fast
must be opened before sunrise. One should not sleep in daytime on the
day of fast.
Puja ( worship )
For removing malefic effects of Sun, if
along with above methods, prayer of Surya Dev is performed everyday then
quicker results are obtained. For this, one has to get up early, perform
daily routines and bath before sunrise. At the time of Sunrise, water
should be offered to Surya Dev. When red golden form of Sun comes on
horizon, that is the right moment of offering water. One should collect
this water in a bowl and pour the same on basil plant. Then one should
perform puja of Sun with Kumkum, Rice and Flowers. After this, one
should sit on the asaana and ignite incense sticks and chant Aditya
Hradaya stotra or Sun mantra.
