The thick curtain of maya


On another occasion, Baba quoted this verse from the Perfect Master Tukaram:

Even if I were to have your sahavas [company] continually,
the mystery of your being would still not be unfolded to me.

Baba explained: “Although you are with me all the time, yet you cannot really see me.”

To illustrate his point, Baba put his hands in front of his face and asked those sitting near him, “Now can you see my face, although you are so close to me?” When they answered no, Baba gestured, “That is how the thick curtain of maya hides my face from your sight. But,” he added, “do not let it worry you. Let your only worry be as to how to love me and obey me more and more.”, p4905
Dec, 1962; Meherazad
