The earth is the natural habitat of man. Why should he venture out of the range of the elements of which his body is composed and go places where he has to take water, air and other essential requisites with him? When he goes to the moon, he does not leave anxiety, fear and falsehood behind. The moon that man has to voyage into is the mind, not the dead satellite with no capacity to illumine itself. The Ramayana mentions that Ravana skilfully prepared a wax head similar to that of Rama and arranged that it be presented before Sita as the severed head of her Lord, so that she might give up all thought of living with Him again, and surrender to the wiles of her captor, Ravana. The moon is like that lifeless imitation head of Rama. The real Rama is vibrant, active, somewhere else. The real moon for man is in the firmament of his 'heart', where the mind and the intelligence (the real sun) revolve.
