A guru and a young disciple were journeying together. They arrived at the banks of a deep river, where there was a woman who requested their assistance to cross the river. The guru carried the woman on his shoulders, the three of them safely crossed the river, and then the guru and the young disciple continued on their way.

But the young disciple began to wonder: Who was the woman? Where was she going? What was her name? Was she married? She had lovely hair didn't she?

The guru stooped and turned to the young disciple and said: I carried the woman across the river - then I put her down. You are still carrying her.

Again, K-patty provides a parable to illustrate the plight of the K-believer who, confident that he is free or soon to be, is in fact, carrying the dead body of K's teaching on his back, choosing to bear its weight rather than be unburdened, free to find his own way.

Thanks for warning of possible illusion that could crop up among the Jk's followers, a keen follower would be on gaurd with illusions, he/she would not make it a belief of condition of mind as non-believers of so called JK'steachings would do.And start attacking the others.

Calm down. No one's "attacking" anyone. I'm just drawing attention to the fact that your dependency on K's thoughts has left you with none of your own.

You're useful, too. Your attempted English is amusing.
