There’s a lovely sanskrit word called mumukshatwam. It refers to a deep yearning for liberation.
So deep, that the yearning for liberation is the only thing that the spiritual seeker yearns for.
Funny it is then, when my Guru asks a gathering of devotees, “How many of you want liberation?”, and all hands fly up immediately.
He then proceeds to add just one more word, “How many of you want liberation, now?”.
And suddenly all hands go down!
Hilarious, but the joke is on us ????
