The light of all lights. “He is the source of light in all luminous objects. He is beyond the darkness of ignorance. He is knowledge, the object of knowledge, and the goal of knowledge. He is situated in everyone’s heart.” (Gita 13: 18) ज्योतिषामपि तज्ज्योतिस्तमसः परमुच्यते | ज्ञानं ज्ञेयं ज्ञानगम्यं हृदि सर्वस्य विष्ठितम् || The above is one of the most enlightening verses from the Gita. It states that there are various illuminating objects in the universe including the sun, moon, stars, and fire. The brilliance of these objects is borrowed from God, who is beyond all darkness. The stars may lose their luminosity someday, but God is self-illumined. He is the object of attainment for all; and all beings should seek His grace, for only by His grace can He be known. In this verse, the Supreme Lord is described as the “Jneya” (the object worthy of knowing), “Jnana-gamya” (the goal of all knowledge), and jnana (true knowledge). Jai Gurudev
