Why can’t we see Sun Light in night?

We see the Sun during the day & its rays lit the whole world during the daytime. We are not able to see the Sun at night.  The reason being that the side of the Earth which we are on, has rotated so that it is facing away from the Sun (into space). At night we have turned our-self opposite to the Sun i.e. earth has moved in such a way that at night, Sun is in opposite direction to us. In simple terms, if we divide the Earth into 2 halves, then at any point of time, one half of the earth sees the Sun while the other half sees the Moon / night / darkness. We all know that the earth takes 24 hrs. to complete one rotation along its own axis. So, if we see, it’s hardly 12 hrs. between the sunrise and the sunset. So we go into the other half of the earth during night and vice versa. At mid night, no direct light of Sun reaches the night side, so we do not see light at night & always remain in darkness.

Here above we have seen that at night, as we are not facing the Sun & as we have moved away from it, then we are not able to see & there is darkness everywhere. Same is the case with God. When we turn away from Him then we are not able to see Him & get His light, wisdom & grace. In our real life, we all have become so busy in our life that we have turned our face away from God. All miseries of our life are only due to that only that we have turned our face away from the God & are living in the dark night of Maya. As soon as, we turn our face towards the God then we are able to see Him & He starts showing his mercy upon us. It is our fault only that we have turned our face, mind away from God, while God is always around us shining like a Sun.

So, O Lord, Lead us away from the Darkness (of Ignorance) to the Light (of Spiritual Knowledge). O Lord, in You, there lies the light of wisdom. Tamas is the darkness. Jyoti is the light. With light, darkness is dispelled. Darkness is death. The light is Truth, Bliss and Peace. The light is eternal. So Lord pl. bless all of us with your bliss.

Below are few verses of Bhagwat Gita which tells that if a devotee turns to the God, then He too turns toward His devotee & always fulfills their desires & always protects them:

"tesam jnani nitya-yukta
eka-bhaktir visisyate
priyo hi jnanino ’tyartham
aham sa cha mama priyah" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Seven verse 17)

"Sri Krishna said to Arjuna: Of these, the one who is in full knowledge and who is always engaged in pure devotional service is the best. For I am very dear to him, and he is dear to Me."

"purushah sa parah partha
bhaktya labhyas tv ananyaya
yasyantah-sthani bhutani
yena sarvam idam tatam" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Eight verse 22)

"Sri Krishna said to Arjuna: The Lord / God, who is greater than all, is attainable by unalloyed devotion. Although He is present in His abode, He is all-pervading, and everything is situated within Him."

So let's have full devotion towards God. "Once the mind of a person is full of surrender to the lotus feet of God & the mind is full of hankering after Lord's qualities, then that person never encounter Yamarâja (Lord of death) and his superintendents, or even in one's dreams meet his servants carrying the ropes to bind, because doing such Devotional service to Lord is the right atonement for all sins." Let’s all turn our face to God & get his mercy. Let Lord Krishna bless all of us.

Jai Shri Krishna
