Everything is a knot

"The Buddha undid the knot that tied the victim to the sacrificial pole. But at the very moment he was undoing it, he explained that everything is a knot. From their vantage point in the heavens, the spies of Varuna, god of knots, were watching."

Roberto Calasso (1999), Ka, translated from the Italian by Tim Parks, Vintage, Random House London, p.367
