mass and energy

Brahmajajnaanam prathamam purastaad..
the two of a large number of vyakhyanams of this  I give below
the full mantra is
brahmajajnaanam prathamam purstad viseematha surucho vena aavah  sa buddhnyaa upama asya vishtaah  satascha yonim asatascha vi vah.ब्रह्म जज्ञानं प्रथमं पुरस्त्ताद् वि सीमतः सुरुचो वेन आवः।
स बुध्न्या उपमा अस्य विष्ठाः सतश्च योनिमसतश्च वि वः।।

Vena, the noon sun who was born at the beginning of the creation as the first effect of the Supreme Reality, Brahman, 
and
 who is of excellent brilliance spreads over the whole world up to its boundary. 
He illuminates also the heavenly bodies.. 
He remains manifoldly in his own limited forms which are like himself. 
He also spreads over and permeates the causal substance out of which the visible and invisible universe emerges
  Mahanarayanopanishat

We see the sun is recognised as the source of all energy, 
and the quantum manifestations of the energy as from the sun, 
the relativity of energy and mass, 
the medium of ether, 
the sun giving light to other heavenly bodies,
 are all given in this mantra..
which is also appearing in taittariya samhita of Krishna yajurvedam and atharva vedam also

Sayana interprets it differently.
He takes this mantra as a glorification of Paramaatma the ground of universe and the cause of the energising and illuminating sun through which He functions 
(More in line with my view in the paragraph immediately above. 

As a scientist the quantum mechanical and relativistic aspects should interest you.  What our culture envisaged millennia ago, when put to words by the westernised stamps gained popularity. This was written thousands of years before Einstein and Max Planck. The germans took away many valuable texts from India and learned Sanskrit, it is said.  How do you feel about it?
