Q276. Student: “Why is the true-self so invisible?”

A. Master: “Don’t speak ill of it. It has never hidden itself.”




It’s like a lost child who has not seen his mother for so long that he can’t recognise her while being in her bosom.

  1. Just as on a cloudy day,I see only clouds.
    When my mind is clouded by illusions ,
    I see only illusions.
    When I realise what illusions are,
    I see True Self.
