A PEACOCK THAT TASTED OPIUM

A MAN once fed a peacock with a pill of opium at four o’clock in the afternoon. The next day, exactly at that lime, the peacock came back. It had felt the intoxication of the drug and returned just in time to have another dose.

Similarly, a devotee who had the good fortune to meet the Master felt an uncontrollable desire to meet him again and again. (143)
