Of Lights I Am the Radiant Sun

"Godhead is Light, Nescience is darkness. Where there is Godhead there is no Nescience."

(Srila Prabhupada's original Back to Godhead logo)

"Kṛṣṇa is compared to sunshine, and māyā is compared to darkness. Wherever there is sunshine, there cannot be darkness. As soon as one takes to Kṛṣṇa consciousness, the darkness of illusion (the influence of the external energy) will immediately vanish."

(Caitanya-caritāmṛta Madhya 22.31)

"Kṛṣṇa is like the sun, and māyā, or the illusory energy of Kṛṣṇa, is like darkness. Darkness means absence of light; similarly, māyā means absence of Kṛṣṇa consciousness. Kṛṣṇa consciousness and māyā are always there, side by side. As soon as there is awakening of Kṛṣṇa consciousness, all the illusory pains and pleasures of material existence are vanquished. Māyām etāṁ taranti te: (BG 7.14) constant chanting of the mahā-mantra will keep us always aloof from the illusory energy of māyā."

(Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 4.11.2, Purport)
