"It is only when the Creator, who abides in the region of light, conceals himself, that we see his Creation...There are seekers of truth that would tear away the screen and go over to the lighted side - that is they want to see the Creator separate from his creation - and nothing can be so empty as the maya [illusion, the material world, physical or phenomenal nature] of their illusion. That is what I felt as I looked at this show [Wayang Kulit]." From Letters from Java 1927 in "Rabindranath Tagore, An Anthology, Krishna Dutta and Andrew Robinson (1997)"
