Thoughts for the Day 5th April 2009

The fundamental ignorance called Maya (delusion) plays many tricks with you. It makes you believe the rope to be a snake and you run away in fright. It makes you imagine a lake of water where there are only the hot sands of the desert, and you run towards it to slake your thirst! And you call it, "mayaa," meaning, "through me," "for me," in Sanskrit, thus identifying yourselves with it, as if it is real and beneficial. The moment you realize it is illusory, it ceases to bother you. Maya creates the universe; it spreads before the mind the vast paraphernalia of the objective world. It is a Narthakee (dancer), an enchantress who entices the intelligence and traps the senses. This Na-rtha-kee can be subdued by Kee-rtha-na. Keerthana is the contemplation and singing of the glory of God.
Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba
