SrI: SrImathE SatakOpAya nama: SrImathE rAmAnujAya nama: SrImath varavaramunayE nama:
na tad bhāsayate sūryo
na śaśāṅko na pāvakaḥ
yad gatvā na nivartante
tad dhāma paramaṁ mama
That ātma-light, no sun can illuminate (by its light), nor the moon nor the fire; for intelligence (or wisdom) indeed is that which gives light to all. The external luminaries are only so far helpful as to scatter the obscurity that intervenes between the senses and their objects. What illumines (or reveals) this —viz., ātma— is Yoga.2
Its antagonist is the time-less karma; and conquest of this (antagonist), it was shown, is by accepting the Blessed Lord as the Deliverer, by attaining Whom there is no reversion to the world, etc., (Gi: XV-4).
That light supreme (=paramam dhāma) is Mine, i.e., belongs to Me, i.e., belongs to My splendour; is a portion (amśa) of Myself.
The supremacy (=paramatvam) of this light consists in its efficiency to light up (with its intelligence) even the sun etc., for, the lights, such as the sun and the rest can never illumine the light of intelligence (Jñāna or consciousness); intelligence alone is the all-illuminator.
