COPLA CUARENTA Y SIETE: This Bad Guy World Could humans be thought intelligent And gods dumb blind bloody heartless: Might it look true Or are humans made to relent Higher design by gods no less: More likely true Supreme God uses toddler gods The rhythmic Shiva dance divine: Yang-Yin la-di-da Till humans learn to become gods And submit to His Grand Design: Lordly lila* • Lila (leela): In Hinduism, the Supreme Being (Brahman) in a magical creative act manifests himself in the Universe acting out the “Divine Play” through a rhythmic dance (of Shiva), and the “Divine Actor” casts a spell on the beholder of the creative act which appears as an illusion (maya) to him. And then He returns to Himself. © T. Wignesan – Paris, 2014
