    The World as a Drama ; Life as a Play !





    There are really three great views of the world that human beings have had.
    one is the western world view which looks upon the world as a construct, an artifact. by analogy with ceramics and carpentry. Then there is the Hindu view which is dramatic and which looks upon the world as a play. Then there is the Chinese view which is organic, and looks upon the world as an organism, a body.

    But the Hindu view of the world sees it as a drama. and it is simply this: there is what there is and always was and always will be and which is called the self. in Sanskrit Atman also called Brahmann (from bri ; to grow, tp expand, to swell, to breath). And the Brahmann, the Self, plays hide and seek with itself for always and always and always.

    How far out, how lost can you get ? …So here each one of us, according to the Hindu idea, is the Godhead, on purpose, getting lost, for the fun of it. and how terrible it can get at times ....... !
    but won’t it be nice when you wake up ..... ? That’s sort of the basic idea and I found it’s an idea that any child can understand. It has great simplicity and great elegance.
