Play your part

A Cup of Tea

…but know well it isn’t you.

Osho in Manali

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
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.

Osho, A Cup of Tea, letter 128
