Prabhasauri in Purana glossary... « previous · [P] · next »

Prabhāsaurī (प्रभासौरी).—At sunset the rays of the sun enter fire and hence the latter is seen in the night; when the sun rises in the morning, fire enters the sun's rays and hence the light of fire is not seen in the day; when the sun is in the middle of the earth night enters the waters and hence they are of the copper colour. In the night day enters the waters and hence waters take the white colour. Thus ahorātras enter waters.*
