Question: Can one attain God-realisation by meditating on the sun?

Sri Chinmoy: One can realise God by meditating on the sun. In India seekers get up at the Hour of God, 3:00 in the morning, and start to meditate on the rising sun. The sun represents dynamism, inner beauty and inner light. The sun is a manifestation of God’s transcendence. As the flower is God’s outer manifestation of beauty and purity, the sun is the manifestation of the beauty and power of God.
