One day a very intelligent man wearing spectacles, came to visit Sisman Tuccar at the teahouse. He said, “I have been comparing the different metaphysical positions of the six main strands of Indian philosophy. One suggests that the world is real whilst another says that the world is an illusion. One says that the world is to be renounced whilst the other says that it is to be embraced. One says all is dual and the other says it’s non-dual. I hardly know what to think now. I just don’t know which position to take.”
Replied Sisman sympathetically, “I understand your dilemma exactly. Sometimes I can’t make up my mind whether I like the asawer best or the borma.”
