There is No Māyā For a Pure Devotee of Kṛṣṇa (05/23/01)

A___ Devi Dasi,

Hare Kṛṣṇa.

Sorry for the later reply, but I am very behind in correspondence and I have many other duties that I have to look after.

The feelings of Śrī Bhagavān have other nature, than the feeling of the soul of this material world. The feelings of Śrī Kṛṣṇa cope by Yogamāyā, and our feelings cope by Mahā-māyā. Śrī Guru is sākṣad-dharitvena and Mahāmāyā does not rule over him. The feeling of Sat Guru cope of Yogamāyā. When he comes in this world, with him Yogamāyā comes also. It is correct?

More or less, that is correct. We do not think of our guru as being in Mahāmāyā. We think of our guru as only being situated at the lotus feet of Kṛṣṇa and always under His divine protection.

This material energy (māyā) also reveals Kṛṣṇa when the devotees engages fully in Kṛṣṇa’s service and surrenders everything to the Supreme Lord. For the pure devotee of Kṛṣṇa there is no ‘māyā.’ The smiling face of Kṛṣṇa is revealed from behind everything. ‘All for the good.’

I hope this meets you well.

Praṇāms,

Swami B.G. Narasiṅgha
