The banyan spreads dark hair on the muddy river
And its red fruits are dropping on it like rain drops.
Come to its folds to experience sleep and death
In extorting sleep, interest for our life’s capital.
The fruits mark time for periodic interest payments.
Interest shall cease only on the final redemption.
In the meantime we sleep off our interest payments
Each time ,hoping that interest is not redemption.
(Schopenhaur’s famous financial metaphor in which he calls sleep little interest payments for the capital of life we had borrowed at birth that will cease only on death,the final redemption)
