Chapter Summary

In this chapter Mani is made to describe five aspects of the sun, namely its (1) light, (2) beauty, (3) peace, (4) life, and (5) force (1Ke 162.1-13). Just as one can see, its light illuminates more than all lights found in the world, so too is its beauty more beautiful than the beauty of all people. Its peace, too, surpasses all the powers and watchers that are found in the world. Its liberation, with which it liberates the Living Soul, is a full day more than all the liberations. The power that is in its Limbs is a great power and is stronger than all powers.
