Another thing my teacher, Tulshi Sen, reminded us:
it doesn’t take a hundred years to light it.
A candle will fill it instantly. He also said,
The sun is so powerful, we don’t see them.
That is how powerful our Consciousness is and why we salute the sun. We’re saluting that light, we’re honouring and obeying that light, and devoting ourselves to live in that light. Everything else will seem faint in comparison.
