yatha hi bhanor udayo nr-caksusam
tamo nihanyan na tu sad vidhatte
evam samiksa nipuna sati me
hanyat tamisram purusasya buddheh
When the sun rises it destroys the darkness covering men’s eyes, but it does not create the objects they then see before them, which in fact were existing all along. Similarly, potent and factual realization of Me will destroy the darkness covering a person’s true consciousness.
