The Divine descends to the earth in human form, declare the scriptures, to allay the sufferings of those who are sick of body or of mind. Man today seeks to have a vision of the supra-human transcendental Being. This is sheer folly, because as long as one has the feeling that he is a human being he can aspire to see God only in human form and is not entitled to see His transcendental form. When one transcends the sense of his humanness, he acquires the privilege to envision the Transcendental Divinity.

The Sun reveals many qualities of the Transcendental reality. The Sun follows its path without divergence; the Sun supplies heat and light of its own nature and effulgence; the Sun provides magnetic energy which is taken up by the Earth. The Sun in its daily appearance indicates the immanence of the transcendental One who is the Source, the Architect, the Creator of All. As significator of the Transcendental, the Sun is the divine architect of the whole universe. Hence, the Sun attracts the title, paresaya.

 


Om paresaya namaha, Salutations to the Sun who is the Supreme, the foremost, the ruler of the transcendental.
