Maya compared to ringworm

Afterwards the discussion drifted to the workings of maya. At one point, Baba explained,

“Maya can be compared to ringworm on one’s skin. The more you scratch, the more you want to scratch and the more pained and miserable you become. In the same way, the more you indulge in maya, the more you want to get involved in it and one becomes all the more pained and miserable.”, p4956
Apr, 1963; Guruprasad


“Know once and for all, as long as you hold fast to my daaman, you are priceless.
But if you let go, you have no worth, no value at all. So beware, and hold on to my  daaman until the very end.”
(Is That So. p47)
