Krishna-Tattva: The Conclusion of the Sruti About Brahm


The Conclusion of the Sruti About Brahm
na tatra suryo bhati candra-tarakam
nema vidyuto bhanti kuto ‘yamagni
tameva bhantam anubhati sarvam
tasya bhasa sarvam idam vibhati
In the transcendental abode of the Lord there is no need of sun, moon, or stars for illumination, nor is there any need of electricity, what to speak of lamps. All of them get their power of illumination from the Lord’s effulgence alone. In fact the whole universe exists only because of His existence. (Katha Upanisad 2.2.15)
hiranmayena patrena satyasyapihitam mukham
tat tvam pusann-apavrnu satya-dharmaya drstaye
O my Lord, sustainer of all that lives, Your real face is covered by Your dazzling effulgence. Please remove that effulgent covering and show Yourself to Your pure devotee. (Isopanisad 15)
pusann akarye yama surya prajapatya
vyuha-rasmin samuha tejo
yat te rupam kalyanatamam tat te pasyami
yo ‘sav asau purusah so ‘ham asmi
O my Lord! O primeval philosopher, maintainer of the universe. O regulating principle, destination of the pure devotees, well-wisher of mankind please remove the effulgence of Your transcendental rays, so that I can see Your form of bliss. You are the eternal Supreme Personality of Godhead, like unto the sun, as am I. (Isopanisad 16)
