They call Me the Light of lights. For I am the light of Fire as well as Lightning, Stars, Moon, Sun and the Light of Knowledge, too. I am the Light of all things that shine. The Sun gives light unto the Moon and the Divine Fire in the Sky illumines the Sun. He who knows this, goes up from light to light and finally attains to the Light of lights Which is the Supreme Splendour that never dies.
By the Shining Lamp of Knowledge I dispel the darkness in those who are devoted to Me. Having seen the Light, it is every man's duty to bring Light into the World, each one according to his means. Enlightening each other, thinking of Me, speaking of Me, thus they abide in Unity with Me.
— Shiva Rahasya (219, 220)
