तमेव भiन्तम् अनुभान्ति सर्वं

न तत्र सूर्यो भाति न चन्द्रतारकं नैवा विद्युतो भान्ति कुतोऽयं अग्निः तमेव भान्तं अनुभान्ति सर्वं तस्य भासा सर्वमिदं विभाति
na tatra sūryo bhāti na candratārakaṁ naivā vidyuto bhānti kuto'yaṁ agniḥ tameva bhantam anubhānti sarvaṁ tasya bhāsā sarvamidaṁ vibhāti upanishad manthra..can be found in quite a number of places
ന തത്ര സൂര്യോ ഭാതി ന ചന്ദ്രതാരകം നൈവാ വിദ്യുതോ ഭാന്തി കുതോയമഗ്നി തമേവ ഭാന്തം അനുഭാന്തി സര്‍വം തസ്യ ഭാസാ സര്‍വമിദം വിഭാതി
In HIS presence the sun cannot shine, nor the moon nor the stars, no lightning can strike, what can the fire do? All the luminous objects appear to be shining by themselves by just reflecting His eternal lustre,

Here we find the zenith of upanishadic thought..There is a supreme being, call it paramatma or godhead, which in omnipotent. Everything emanates from Him. Without Him no other natural force and its manifestation, its static or evolutionary existence can have any meaning. In astrophysics, we may try to draw semblance of comparison with black holes. In thermodynamics the ideal white body and the perfect black body may try to explain this. The electromagnetic spectral frequencies for the various radiations, light, heat, electricity are all decided by Him.
Living in this small speck of His creation, and still insignificant creature of His we are, we arrogate to ourselves all knowledge, wealth and power. What are we to call ourselves?
