A Great Radiance

The Light that Helps Us Become Aware of Others When the Bodhisattva was emerging from his mothers womb a great radiant light surpassing even the radiance of the gods shone forth into the world. And in the black, gloomy darkness between the galaxies, where even the light of our sun and moon, powerful and majestic though they are, cannot reach, even there that great radiant light shone. And the beings who lived in those regions of darkness became aware of each other because of that radiance, and they said; ‘Behold! It seems that other beings live here also’ (M.III,124).
