Swami Sivandanda Pocket Spiritual Gems 3: Maya Tempts

Maya Tempts

Maya tempts the ignorant Jiva-

She puts a little coating of sensual pleasures

Over intense pain-giving objects,

A little sugar-coating over the

Ever-bitter quinine pills.

Develop dispassion and discrimination

And attain freedom and eternal bliss.
