Alright! Maya – we have heard this term several times. Why is the sensory subjects called Maya? The chanting theme for today is Maya. Maya is not the term given to essential stuff needed in life but it is something that constantly runs in our mind and keeps our mind restless. A spiritual seeker, a true peace seeker, a bliss seeker would understand how important it is to break free from the attachment of Maya.The swarved chanting today is intended to enhance our detachment from Maya and help develop the ground for true mental peace.

Maya is an illusionary happiness. More we go after Maya, more it enhances craving for it. This is why it is called Maya – the illusion. One chases Maya from childhood to death hoping for an ultimate peace but it only intensifies the craving even more. The reason for this illusion is the evil mind that only fools the soul with all sensory subjects. Wise are those who follow what is right for the soul and stops becoming prey to the deceipts of Mind. The teachings of Sadguru brings real happiness to the soul. Can we really tame our mind and prepare it to stay away from Maya all by ourselves? It is easier said than done. It is in Sadguru’s shelter alone where Maya cannot enter. Therefore, all spiritual aspirants must seek and surrender to the shelter of Sadguru.
