366 Days of Maya - Day 366


Maya - The distinction between the self and the Universe is a false dichotomy. This is Maya/an Illusion.

Lila - Brahman is perfection. And to say that Brahman has some purpose in creating the world will mean that it wants to attain through the process of creation something which it has not. And that is impossible. Hence, there can be no purpose of Brahman in creating the world. The world is a mere spontaneous creation of Brahman. It is a Lila, or sport, of Brahman. It is created out of Bliss, by Bliss and for Bliss. Lila indicates a spontaneous sportive activity of Brahman as distinguished from a self-conscious volitional effort. The concept of Lila signifies freedom as distinguished from necessity. —Ram Shanker Misra

Be free of illusion. Be content. Be blissful. And be awesome while you're at it!



Deepest gratitude to every one who followed and loved this project. I'll continue to keep everyone updated with Maya's shenanigans, so don't you be sad for even a second!
