“We are in the midst of the ocean of maya and we are floating on the waves of maya. Different types of waves are like the different types of material situations, material allurements, material happinesses, but just as one is uplifted by a wave, next minute one is thrown down by the wave, In this way we are forced to drink the salty waters, we are forced to accept this plummeting and beating by the waves of material world.”
