Introduction: A lot of Sadhus tend to reject the realm of the material, stating that it is an illusion. This is not what Hinduism recommends. Rejecting the world is nothing but NIHILISM, a bitter philosophy that is nothing but a failure.
*MAYA VERSUS REALITY*
We are here on this planet for a finite amount of time...
and consequently this world is called maya/illusion, by Hindus.
Because as per Hinduism, anything that is temporary is MAYA. Illusion.
Our possessions are illusions.
Even our bodies are illusions.
Because only something ETERNAL, something that will last forever - only such a thing - it's existence is not disputable.
All temporary things
their existence is disputable
after they cease to exist, after they dissolve, do they exist?
except in memory
which is arbitrary, illusory, fleeting
So that's what its about. Something REAL can only be something ETERNAL.
which will forever be available
to remove all doubts of its existence
to remove all doubts of its qualities
before your father and mother conceived you?
Yanni believes passion is eternal...
Uriah Heep found his eternal thing...
Deep Purple looks for the eternal in the echoes of the past...
