The Master Said:
"In the PurAna it is said that it was if a hundred suns were shining
when RAma entered the court. Why, then, weren't the courtiers burnt up?
It was because the brilliance of RAma was not like that of a material object.
As the lotus blooms when the sun rises, so the lotus of the heart of the
people assembled in the court burst into blossom."
