NURU is the source of energy, NURU shines through the sun bringing forth heat and light to the world, NURU shines through the stars and lightens the world as it taketh away the darkness. NURU is the purest form of energy as it can neither be created nor destroyed but shines on ALL.
NURU shines in the darkness to reveal the hidden and unseen therefore, the sturdier the light, the more the revealed. NURU enlightens our minds enabling us to see, experience, appreciate and deeply understand the known and unknown; NURU is the source of knowledge.
