It will be a lamp in the darkness of the netherworld.

It [b]will be a lamp in the darkness of the [/b]netherworld and a fine horse to carry you over the mountains of death. It is like the sun and the moon in the heavens or Mount Sumeru on earth. It is a ship to ferry people over the sea of birth and death. It is the guiding master who leads all people to enlightenment.”

The above is from a Buddhist magazine.

Is “It will be a lamp in the darkness of the netherworld” ( the bold part in the above passage) a phrase, a clause or a sentence?

Thanks.

Part of a sentence!
