Maya works her havoc through the imagination. Woman is not beautiful, but the imagination is beautiful. Sugar is not sweet, but the imagination is sweet. Food is not palatable, but the imagination is palatable. Man is not weak, but the imagination is weak. Understand the nature of Maya and the mind and become wise. Curb this imagination of the mind by Vichar or right thinking and rest in Brahman, wherein there is neither imagination nor Sankalpa not thought.
The salt of life is selfless service. The bread of life is all-embracing love. The water of life is purity.
