Many spiritual traditions see light as associated with purity, freedom, holiness, or divinity. But you need not be a religious person to sense the powerful potential of light. Light makes the plants of the earth grow, and a sunny morning can make you feel good simply by its glorious radiance.

In Buddhism, meditations using light are considered an especially effective means of releasing the grasping qualities of tight minds, and this is the basis of all healing.
