MAYA A STATEMANT OF FACT

Our daily practical life in the dual world is not possible without Maya. We all live, move and think in Maya. Inexplicable in the extreme, Maya is described as ‘aghatana ghatana patiyasi’---making the impossible possible. Under its spell even an incarnation of God appears to forget their supernatural resplendence and behaves like an ordinary mortal. Maya is responsible for the contradictions in our thinking and actions. Good is eventually followed by evil, and yet we work to create only good, believing that it will ultimately eliminate evil in the relative world.

The cause determines the effect; yet we seek to accomplish good ends by bad means, we seek to establish peace through war. This is Maya. A man robs his fellow men and then gives away his wealth in philanthropy, expecting eternal happiness hereafter. Attachment, without which no happiness is possible on earth, creates bondage and brings suffering to both lover and beloved. This is all Maya. Money creates leisure and builds up culture, and in the end emasculates a nation and brings about its ruins. The performance of duty elevates a man above the animals, and also obstructs its ultimate freedom. We want to conquer nature through material resources, and in the end we only become slaves of matter. This is Maya.
