"MAYA"

Swami Sivananda

The things that we perceive all round us are only mind in form or substance. The world is a product of the mind. The whole world is an expansion of the mind. The entire universe arises and exists in the mind. Nothing of the world is outside the mind. Earth, mountains and rivers - all are fragments of the mind, appearing as it were, to exist outside. The world does not exist by itself. It is not seen without the aid of the mind. It disappears when the mind ceases to function, as in deep sleep. Contd…


The realization of the Absolute is not the result of karma, because if anything is the result of action, it means there was a time when it did not exist and it has since come into being. Whereas, the Absolute is the beginingless and causeless cause of all things.

- Swami Chidananda
