As I feel, those who avoid going into the deep to understand the in-depth meanings of such scripture are just like those doctors belonging to English Medical Science who simply term the disease as an Allergy when they fail to understand the cause of disease find difficulty in recommending the right medicine. In Indian medicine science, there is no such word as Indian science has the answer to all the disease a person can have , whether physical or mental.

It "rises" in the east to bring it's warmth, light, and "sets" in the West, plunging the world into darkness with all the associated insecurites and dangers.
