Maya And Her Journey Back

Maya: Veil of Illusion | Creation and Dissolution of the Universe

The world that we see around is not really the way it appears to our senses. There is more to it than meets the eye. The reality of the world is covered by the power of Maya. This Maya makes the world appear and disappear. We as jeevas or living entities view creation which in itself is a setup of Maya and hence, there is a clout that covers the real picture present behind Maya. Our understanding is clouded by Maya.

The reality cannot be further than this.

While analyzing such scripture, the rule of thumb is to be able to harmonize contradictory statements and arrive at one universal meaning in the most profound manner. This shall happen only if one has the power of spiritual practice behind him.
