What Is Maya?

Do you know what is maya? Your love towards all these relations of father and mother, brother and sister, wife and son, nephew and niece constitutes maya. On the other hand, daya (kindness) means love for all created beings. Well, what is it in my case ­ maya or kindness? Hriday has, however, done so much for me, served me so well. He would clean my excreta with his own hands. But he was equally hard on me at the end. He became so hard that I once went to the embankment to drown myself in the Ganga. Yet, he has done a lot for me. If he could get some (money), my mind would feel at rest. But whom shall I ask for it? I don’t want to ask any babu.

~Gospel Of Sri RamaKrishna
