SB-1.2.11- The Aim Of life — April 26, Tirupati, 1974
464) Whether I know who Vivasvan is! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
—-According to Bhagavad-Gita, we have got the name of the predominating deity in the sun globe. Imam vivasvate yogam proktavän aham avyayam [Bg. 4.1]. This is said in the Bhagavad-Gita. First of all Krsna says, “Long, long ago, millions of years ago, I spoke this philosophy of Bhagavad-Gita to Vivasvän.” Vivasvän means the present predominating deity of the sun globe. Just like we have got a president, similarly, but he has got a particular name, similarly, the president of the sun globe is called Sürya, Süryadeva. But he has got a particular name. So at the present moment, the predominating deity of the sun globe is called Vivasvän. So this Vivasvän or the sun-god and the sun globe and the sunshine, they are not different. All of them are light. Without light in the sun globe, how so much light is emanating? So therefore the inhabitants of the sun globe, their body is made of fire. Therefore everything is glowing. —————
