Ananda Ramayan

Mistaking Of the Body for the Self Is Called Maya – Bhagavan Sri Ram in Yoga Vasishta

Know that the chanting of my name destroys all sins in this world, if the chanting is done with one pointed devotion and complete dependence upon me.
The mistaking of the body for the Self is called maya. This maya is responsible for the creation of samsara.
On account of false imagination, much as a rope is mistaken for a snake, so also the pure Supreme Self is mistaken for this universe by the power of maya. If we think deeply, the universe disappears and Brahman (God) alone remains.
I clearly see that such men are rare who do not become dejected when faced with danger, or overcome by delusion, who do not become proud when their selfish end is attained and who are not perturbed by the glances of women. We can seldom find such men.
