Illusory world

Illusion is the basis of the juggler’s tricks. Through Maya, the world, which is no more substantial than a mirage, appears to be real. Children admire the juggler and think that his tricks are realities, but adults know that he is a trickster and that his tricks are illusions. Ignorant men regard the world as the ultimate reality, but dnyanis* know that it is only illusion.
