How maya works: demons pulling each others' ears

    Posted on March 31, 2016



Русский перевод

Srila Prabhupada: In my young days we had one teacher. Whenever there was any misbehavior between the boys, the teacher would stop them and bring them out to the front of the class. He would make them stand face-to-face and each take hold of the ears of the other and on his order make them pull. So the one, he is pulling, and the other is hurting, so he pulls back even harder, and each one is pulling and crying. But they cannot let go because the teacher is ordering, ‘No, you cannot stop. You must go on pulling!' Similarly, maya brings together one Churchill and one Hitler — ‘Now, rascal, pull!' And neither can stop. And the foolish people glorify them.

Told by Hari-sauri Prabhu, Transcendental Diary Vol. 1
