There is a beautiful Indian tale that illustrates the meaning of this light. It is said that there is a certain kind of cobra which has a diamond in its head, and when it goes into the jungle, it takes out the diamond and places it on a tree; and by means of its light it searches out all it wants, and when it has finished it puts the diamond back in its head. The cobra represents the soul, and the diamond the light of inspiration guiding it.
