Nature itself is a gambler and cheat.
To forsake outward show and engage in the way of private adoration
to escape from the contradictions of nature
an act of “deception”.
But to call it “deception” is hardly appropriate,
for such secretiveness is essential to the worshiper security.
It is required that the worshiper
although in possession of a heart
that is lit up with knowledge,
appear outwardly ignorant
like a benumbed Bharat
[a very prominent sage in spiritual history of great spiritual country India]
– like one who is insane, blind, deaf and dumb.
Although he sees,
he should show as if he knows nothing,
although he hears,
it should appear that he has heard nothing.
The canon of worship is that it should be private and secret.
Only then can he win in the gamble of nature.
This is one of the key secrets to keep in mind
while traversing upon
“Path of Self Realization”
