Yoga Sutra 3.26

Bhuvana-jñánam súrye sanyamát

Saṁyama on the sun gives knowledge of different parts of the world.

Here Patanjali gives the first of three sutra-s on celestial bodies.  The sun is the symbolic centre of our solar system; it brings light to our life.  By in depth Saṁyama on this centre, each world can be known.   Traditionally, this is achieved by (standing, staring at the sun, eyes closed) ‘sun meditation’.
