Oh the infallible, at that time our eyes become useless as it is in the absence of the sun. #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="PURPORT"#PURPORT#/span##/h4# #div class="purport"# We are all proud of our material senses for making an experiment in the matter of the existence of God. But we forget that our senses are not absolute by themselves. They can act under certain conditions. For example our eyes. So long the sunshine is there our eyes are useful to a certain extent. But in the absence of sunshine the eyes are all useless. Lord Sri Krishna being the Primeval Lord, the Supreme Truth, He is compared with the Sun. Without Him all our knowledge are either false or partial. The opposite number of the sun is the darkness and similarly the opposite number of Krishna is Maya or illusion. The devotees of the Lord can see everything in true perspective on account of the light disseminated by Lord Krishna. By the Grace of the Lord the pure devotee cannot be in the darkness of ignorance. Therefore, it is necessary that we must always be in the sight of Lord Krishna so that we can see both ourselves and the Lord with His different energies. As we cannot see anything in the absence of the sun so also we cannot see anything including our own self without the factual presence of the Lord. Without Him all our knowledge is so called and covered by illusion. #/div# please wait #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TEXT_No._9"#TEXT No. 9#/span##/h4# #div class="SB65verse"# Yarhi ambujaksha apasasara bho bhavan Kurun madhun va atha suhrid didrikshaya.
