A Cup of Tea (129)
In sannyas, samsara is just a drama;
to know the world as a play is sannyas;
then no one is small,
no one great,
no Ram and no enemy, Ravan,
and everything is a Ram-leela, God’s play.
Whichever part you are given play it well;
the part is not you
and as long as we identify with our part in the play
self-knowledge is impossible.
And from the day that this identification is broken
ignorance becomes impossible.
Play your part
but know well it isn’t you.
