There are, O monks, these four splendors.
What four?
The splendor of the moon, the splendor of the sun,
the splendor of fire and the splendor of wisdom.
Of these four splendors, this is the best:
the splendor of wisdom.
There are, O monks, these four radiances...
these four lights... these four lusters...
these four sources of illumination.
Of these four sources of illumination, this is the best:
illumination by wisdom.
--the Buddha
