The deer, the elephant, the moth, the fish and the honey-bee, these five meet death because of their bondage to one of the five senses. What then is the condition of a person who is attached to
all five? - Vivekachudamani - 76
The moth is mad to enjoy fire.
If you have a candle inside a closed window pane in the darkness of the night, the moth just flying with all of its strength, trying to break through the window to get to that fire.
Its eyes, its sense of sight is so powerful! The moth is destroyed due to its addiction to the sense of sight
The bee is very much attached to smelling.
Sometimes a bee goes into a flower. It just doesn’t want to leave it.
It smells for a long time untill the sun sets. The flower closes and the bee gets trapped, and dies. It’s victimized by the sense of smell.
Very strong desire to taste. The fisherman puts a bait, best possible food that the fish likes on a hook and the fish doesn’t see the hook
& the greed of taste makes her someone else food.
The deer is very attracted to hear sweet sounds. They love to hear music. When a hunter wants to catch the deer, he plays a flute and the deer hears the flute and gets trapped.
Elephants are very attached to the sense of touch, to catch a female elephant, poacher use a male elephant & for male elephant, they use a female elephant. They dig a big ditch covered with straw.
A trained elephant rubs against the elephant of the opposite gender which is to be captured. When the other elephant starts following, it is pushed into the well by the trained elephant. So by the sense of touch, the elephant is captured.
These innocent animals are just following the universal law but what about we humans,
we got a choice but the right one's to chant the holy name we ignore, all senses are so strong only to fulfill material desires & get trapped in Jal of Maya.
