Srimate Sri Lakshmi Nrisimha Parabrahmane Nama:

Sri Lakshminrisimha Divyapadhukasevaka Srivan Satakopa Sri Narayana
Yatheendhra Mahadesikaya Nama:

Adiyen have a doubt regarding AargyaPradhana Manthram.
Please correct me if I am wrong in my understanding.

As per my little knowledge,AargyaPradhana Manthram affects Rahu who
tries to affect Sun during sun rise and sun set.We do Kala athitha
Prayaschitham if we are unable do at the exact time.

My doubt is in various countries sun rise and sun set times vary.
India(00:30 GMT)
UK(06:00 GMT an average of summer and winter sunrise times)
USA(11:00 GMT) etc...

>From this I feel that sunrise will be there at any time in one place
of the earth.So all the 24 hours sunrise is there w.r.t. various places.

So does it mean that Rahu is trying to affect Sun all 24 hours.Why are
we doing kala athitha Prayachitham?

I fully believe our vedas and Santhyavandhanam and I do
Sandhyavandhanam regularly.But I got a little doubt.Definitle there
will be a very good answer but I am ignorant of that.Please enlighten
me on this point.
