What is Maya? What is Maya created by God versus Maya created by Human Beings?!

Shri Mataji: “So they say that this maya is created by God. No! Maya that God has created is this world, this whole universe and all that but this illusive life is created by human beings. Absolutely, through their projections of their brains and mental capacities, they have projected..  So this is one of the illusions that human beings have created is what you call is money maya and, in that, comes also the wealth, possessions, materialism. Everything is created by human beings and this creation of materialism then boils you down to a personality which is involved in all sinful act. Anything is all right because if money is all right, materialism is all right.

That Illusiveness is called Maya. And this illusiveness appeals to many people. Appeals — that’s the point I’m worried about. Something is illusive, then they go on running after that like a mirage and ultimately they are destroyed.” (Lecture on Mahamaya, Auckland, New Zealand,  1994)

Shri Mataji: “We should not get lost into the Maya. If you are a Witness you can see the Maya, how it works. Our Brain should become a Sakshi, should become a witness .. witness the (divine) play. You should not take anything as something extremely serious. When you look at things as something that you are watching a drama .. So to reach that state you have to become Thoughtlessly Aware. Because we think from our brain. And this brain goes on thinking, thinking, creating a Maya and playing into Maya.”

Shri Mataji: “Now here it is when you are a realized soul you should see through the Maya. So in your brain there should be no worry, there should be no stress. There should be no problem. Because you are just watching everything in
Thoughtless Awareness. So when you are thoughtless awareness, means when your brain is just in the state of witness you understand everything that is Divine.”

    Mother’s explanation of Maya as created by God and how it differs from what is made by human beings was quite an eye-opener

    It was great watching Monali on video.Nobody could have guessed she’s a new entrant to sahaja.

    And the beautiful picture of a vibrant yellow flower with the honey bee by Jean Louis filled the heart with joy.

    Monali, so much humility and purity in her talk!!! While her two stories (Astaa Vakra and Nicheketa)were great lessons, her simplicity and honesty touched my heart.

    Our Ma is working in all of us, all the time.

    Thank you Monali for your talk, I work to become what you are.

    My knowledge about Raja Janaka was very limited. I just knew he was the father of Shri Sita and was one of the ten primordial Guru. Monali’s presentation showed the deepness in his character and being so detached despite having a kingdom to run was truly remarkable. The vibrations were cool from the very beginning of the video. Thanks Monali.

    Thanks to Monali I was able to actually “be” in the Milton class! I felt very fortunate to watch her insight and relay of stories to help others understand the quality of detachment. The value of detachment that Raja Janaka portayed in story form was so clear. A friend of mine asked me about a meditation book she was reading that asked her to give away something to a friend, and she could not get the concept. Before Sahaja Yoga I could not get it either! But this example explains it so well, and there are so many examples to emulate and absorb. The value of being detached is the key to enjoying everyone and everything. Very enlightening,thank you!

    Very nicely done – thanks for reminding us about Detachment, the Maya, reaching the state of Thoughtless Awareness and becoming the Witness – great qualities that Shri Janaka possessed.

    Lots of love always.
