Inside it, constantly shining like lightning, is the triangle, and inside this, again, shines the Great Void which is served in secret by all the Suras."' Some say the petals turn upward, toward the Heavens. Ancient texts say they turn downward, hugging the skull. The petals are believed to be a lustrous white.
