1. Coming back to the cage

    Sometimes you have seen somebody takes his bird in the field and let him loose, out of the cage, and the bird goes and he also goes behind. This human form of body is just like let loose. Now you get the freedom of flying away from this mrtyu-samsara-vartmani, but that we’ll not do. We’ll enter again. We are not interested how to get out of the cage of mrtyu-samsara-vartmani. We are again and again coming back to the cage.
