|I don't believe that is quite accurate. Surely it is the
|notion that there is a *SEPARATE* self that is the core of our
|own particular human Maya and suffering.
|The idea that our ignorance is the one thing that keeps "the
|whole manvantara" going seems somewhat exoteric and
|superficial, if not simply
|grandiose. Will the entire Manvantara and all the future
|periodical and regular manifestations of the One Self Existing
|Parabrahm) all come to an end when we truly realise we are not
|separate from one another?
|Maybe the KOSMOS with its cycles of rest and activity, the
|periodical playground of numberless Universes, is much much
|grander and far more meaningful than the pitiful stage of
|selfishness and separateness that our current humanity is
