“Mind is always caught by some sort of attachment”

On 10 May, Baba was in a happy mood again when Rustom and Sohrab, along with their servant Narya, enacted a humorous skit about a father agonizing over finding a suitable match for his daughter. Baba enjoyed it thoroughly and remarked:

The world is a drama. You weep, you laugh — to weep and laugh again. It is all a tamasha [a show]. When the inner eye is opened, you will see this clearly.

Mind is always caught by some sort of attachment. You free yourself from one and get tethered to another. The grip of maya gets tightened in your very attempt to loosen it. It can be unfastened in a flash of a second, or it may not be loosened at all after billions of years. The trickery of maya continues until you discern the Divine beneath this mayavic mischief.
