sūryanakṣatra Is found in the śatapatha Brāhmana in a passage where Sāyana takes it as denoting a Nakçatra, which gives out rays of light like the sun. But the real sense (as the Kāṇva text helps to show) is that the sacrificer may take the sun for his Nakṣatra—i.e., he may neglect the Nakṣatras altogether and rely on the sun.
