दिवि सूर्यसहस्रस्य भवेद्युगपदुत्थिता।
यदि भाः सदृशी सा स्याद्भासस्तस्य महात्मनः।।11.12।।
।।11.12।। आकाश में सहस्र सूर्यों के एक साथ उदय होने से उत्पन्न जो प्रकाश होगा? वह उस (विश्वरूप) परमात्मा के प्रकाश के सदृश होगा।।
The word sahasraya means thousand but can literally be taken to be innumerable as 1000 suns simultaneously rising in the sky would be uncountable. Like the thousands of heroic deeds of the avatars of Lord Krishna, this statement is made for elucidation of the resplendent splendour of the visvarupa or divine universal form. In the Rig Veda is stated: The Supreme Lord of eternal power and eternal energy is of eternal brilliance even easily exceeding the sun. This comparison is based on the conclusive evidence of the Vedic scriptures and it is of no avail to try to compare it to anything else.
