​Thanks. Also thanks to Subbuji, who suggested that I gather these together
in a post.

​The Karikas 2.17 and 2.18 talk of rope seen as snake; the other way around
may be referred somewhere else. I remember Pujya Swami Dayanandaji used to
give the example of snake seen as a rope being more dangerous, as a joke
though, as one may pick it up! :)

Kind rgds,
