FILE INFO
CaptionOne day mother Sachi brought a dish of sweets for her child Nimai to eat. When she walked away to return to her household duties, Nimai began to eat dirt. She saw this and immediately rushed back to Him and asked Him why He was eating dirt. Nimai replied that all sweets and other eatables are transformations of dirt, so what is the difference between them. Mother Sachi was astonished at His words on Mayavada philosophy, and she gave him this example, "In a water pot, which is a transformation of dirt, I can bring water very easily. But if I poured water on a lump of dirt, the lump would soak up the water, and my labor would be useless." The Lord accepted His mother's explanation and asked her why she hadn't taught Him this practical philosophy from the beginning.
- Taken from Chaitanya-Caritamrita, Adi-lila 14.24-34
