(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 2004)

How can you figure out what’s realistic while you’re in maya?

A brahmacari called Giriraj Das once said to Prabhupada:

“Prabhupada, sometimes I’m in maya”.

Prabhupada said:

“What do you mean, you’re always in maya!”

Are we any different from that? Aren’t we always in maya?

So how can you figure out what’s realistic when you’re in a illusion?

There is a fundamental difficulty there. So we can only figure out what’s realistic, if we’re free from maya in a sense. Therefore it’s better to take the superior instruction from our Spiritual Master, who will tell us when to walk on our toes and when to relax- that’s safer!
