		MahAnArAyaNOpanishat - manthra-3

	yEnAvrtham Kham cha divam mahIm cha
	yEnAdithyasthapathi thEjasA bhrAjasA cha
	yamanthassamudrE kavayO vayanthi
	yadaksharE paramE prajA:


He, by whom the atmospheric region, the celestial region and 
the terrestrial region are pervaded, He by whose splendor and 
heat the Sun illumines, and He whom the wise sages know as 
residing in the ocean, is residing in the supreme immutable abode. 
He is Brahman.


All luminaries derive their heat and light from that supreme as 
declared in the sruthi-
	'yEna sUryasthapathi thEjasEddha:'

The order of words in the third pAda is like this -
	'yam cha kavaya: prajA: antha: samudrE avayanthi'

The term 'prajA:' means foremost of people as the preposition 'pra' has the 
sense of prominence.
