Lack of inquiry is sure means to destruction. On the other hand, one who is given to deliberation, triumphs and attains what he wants. The enquiring spirit is the sprouting seed of the tree of happiness. The person of enquiring disposition outshines others.
Persons incapable of reflection are like the frogs in the well. The frogs in the well know nothing good or bad and perish in the well itself. Similarly, in the well of universe, there are persons, who are totally ignorant who go through birth and death repeatedly and who do not know that is good to oneself.
Because of lack of discrimination, they see pain as pleasure and pleasure as pain and undergo torment of transmigration. Worldly bonds cause distress again and again but people do not discard them.
Man undergoing repeated birth and death is akin to the ass,
which despite being kicked again and again by her seeks the company of she-ass.
~ Teachings of Guru Dattatreya
