How does the churning of emotions bring about self-realization in Prakriti even if at the cost of her mother’s life?
Prakriti was initially moved by the humanity of the monk and begged her mother to cast a spell on him. The spell was meant to distract or disillusion the monk and draw him towards Prakriti in a lustful manner. Since the monk was devout of lord Buddha, casting the spell meant that Prakriti’s mother was committing sin upon a follower of God, and hence her life was drawing to an end.
Towards the end of the spell, Ananda the monk was completely overpowered and had now transformed into a wicked image of humanity. This transition of the monk disturbed Prakriti and changed her emotional state of mind. However, the change came in too late for Prakriti’s realization and her mother died.
