Notice the development of the mango starting from its half- ripe stage to the stage of complete fruition. Initially it is bitter, then astringent, sour and saline – this way the ﬂavours gradually change in order to settle ﬁnally in sweetness. Thus from unripe stage to the fully-ripe stage all the six ﬂavours play their part. In the same manner, even in the evolution of Life, there exists a role for the six Rasas. Just as the ṣadrasas culminate in Madhura Rasa, Life also must culminate in sweetness. This verily is the essence of Life. This is what is preordained in Nature. This indeed is Sṛṣṭi-Sahaja, Satyasiddha and Ātmasiddha too (natural, true and established in Ātman).
