Illusion or Reality?

By August 22, 2016Uncategorized

Illusion or Reality? – Looks like a huge spider crawling on the rock! But then, yes, it does not exist. Thanks to the thick vegetation around the rock and the time of the day, the “spider” shadow is projected right on the rock to create this illusion – nature’s way of saying “Seeing – is not believing”. While sight is widely recognized as one of the important senses, it has been deemed deficient in its own right. Indian Mythology is replete with stories to illustrate this notion. Why, then, are we so susceptible to be judgmental by sight? While what is presented to us might be an illusion or a farce, why do we take it for real?
