The Play of Samsara

Papaji gives an analogy of samsara with the story of a man who falls into a well, grabs a rope, and then becomes unaware of everything else as he enjoys the honey falling from an overhanging tree (sense desires). All the while the man forgets that beneath him a crocodile is waiting for him (death), and two rats (day and night) are slowly cutting the rope (life) he is clinging to. Samsara is ‘Hang On’!
