The "real seat of Vishnu," then, dawns on man "as the form of light."6 Brahman is seen as the light of an endless sphere.7 The "Brahman-OM" is "the highest light, the foundation and sovereign lord of all...."8 Brahma is light, says the Maitri Upanishad, and the mystic symbol OM is "a leader, brilliant, sleepless, ageless [and] deathless...."9 Brahma, "the limitless One," is that "shining form which gives heat in yonder sun.... Unending are the rays of him."10 Brahman is "self-shining," "self-luminous," and "shines by his own brightness." As He shines "does everything else shine after."11 As we find in the Brahmarahasya Upanishad
