OJAS and TEJAS ,  are two words in Sanskrit which mean LGHT and its
radiation.  Ojas relates to the light which is emitted and seen beyond
the object, while Tejas is the intrinsic light of the thing within it.

Tejas.  The sunlight that it emits and which then falls upon objective
nature, its solar system, and the things on our earth-I am not dealing
with the subjective, now-is the Ojas which we perceive of the sun.

Every object therefore emits a radiation, seen by our physical eyes, as
the objects, form and shape, its colour; and also be cognised by other
senses as smell,  feeling and taste.  Beyond the physical it emits the
Ojas of its aura with those particular colours, which identify its
freshness, and its particular qualities of goodness and nutrition.
