Kumara Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Another analogy is utilized by Lord Krishna in how the sun is able to solely illuminate the entire universe. In the same way does paramatma or the Supreme Soul illuminate all the atmas or immortal souls in creation and then each individual atma illuminates with consciousness the tabernacle of the physical body of every jiva or embodied being in which it inhabits in that lifetime. This consciousness exists completely throughout the physical body surrounding it as well to some degree and definitively thinks that the physical body is its ksetra or field of activity. It should be understood that just as the sun in its capacity of illumination differs from the universe it illuminates. In the same way it should be understood that paramatma is supremely different from all individual atmas even though it illuminates them all with consciousness and in the same manner it should be understood that the localized atma is uniquely different from its ksetra of the body.
