Discussion-2. "Moha and Soka" ....
Not only that a man of Self-realisation has understood in his own vital experience that he is not a separate individual living as opposed to others, but, in his essential nature, he is nothing but the harmony or unity that underlies all seeming discord or plurality, which are
perceived as a scum upon the reality.
He, who has thus realised his oneness with the entire, can no longer have the ordinary tossings of the mind arising out of the ordinary psychological tensions created through delusion ( moha ), or through the grief ( soka ).
Grief ( soka ) is the language of delusion.
The amount of grief in an individual's life is directly proportional to the amount of delusion in him.
In his essential nature, he is All-Bliss.
Unity or harmony is Bliss.
But in delusion, when he cognises plurality and discord, there arises in him the experience of grief.
This delusion creates grief, and more the delusion, more is the grief.
