FOR THE DELIGHTS OF KISSING THE DELUDED CRAVE

DECLARING IT TO BE THE ULTIMATELY REAL --

LIKE A MAN WHO LEAVES HIS HOUSE AND STANDING AT THE

DOOR ASKS (A WOMAN) FOR REPORTS OF SENSUAL DELIGHTS.

THAT WHICH FETTERS WITH WHAT GIVES RELEASE, IN

PRIDE WILL CALL THEMSELVES YOGIS.

And when the space is ready, the whole flows in.

I have heard a very beautiful story, a very ancient one.

In a province, no rain had fallen for a long time. Everything was dried up. At last the citizens decided to fetch the rainmaker. A deputation was sent to see him in the distant town where he lived with the urgent request to come as soon as possible and make rain for their parched fields.

The rainmaker, a wise
