Parable Of The Man In The Python’s Mouth

Two men were walking along the jungle-path. One man was going a furlong ahead of the
other. The man walking ahead was suddenly caught hold of by a huge python which was
swallowing him. The other man hesitated and stood where he was. The first man, with half his body swallowed by the python began shouting at the other: “You fool, why are you standing there
hesitant? Come, I am here to lead you and protect you.”
Similarly, man has been caught by the huge python of Maya. He is being swallowed by this
terrible creature. Yet, such is the height of his delusion, he boasts that he can protect others and that he can guide and lead them, along to safety and happiness!
