“Know nature to be Maya and the Ruler of this Maya is the Lord Himself.” — Svetasvatara Upanishad.( 5000 BC )
God lives in Time and Space and moves with Time (both are eternal ). Heavens, Earth, day and night all serve Time and Time controls All . (Rig Veda 1-95-7).
‘That which is above the sky, that which is beneath the earth, that which is between these two, sky and earth that which the people call the past, the present and future, across space is that woven like warp and weft. – Brhadaranyaka Upanisad 5000 BC
The theory of Maya is one of the grand pillars upon which Vedanta rests.
The word origin of MAYA is derived from the Sanskrit roots MA ( not ) and YA ( that ).
The term MAYA is mentioned 72 times in Rigveda written down in Sanskrit in 5000 BC. Maya is mentioned 29 times in the Atharva Veda.
In Puranas and Vaishnava theology, Maya is described as one of the nine shaktis of the reclining Vishnu.
Below: This giant golden idol was found at Padmanabha Swamy temple Kerala from a locked and forgotten vault.. Brahma sitting on a tender swaying lotus on the navel shows precession of the planet.
Qutab Minar, a Hindu monument– is meant to be viewed from TOP–from a helicopter hovering above the pillar. Islamic lies wont work anymore !
MAYA is the veritable fabric of duality, and she performs this role at the behest of BrahmAn, the morphogenetic consciousness field.. The Supreme God is not bound by Maya just as magicians do not believe the illusions of their own magic.
Swami Vivekananda had told Nikola tesla that science and religion would meet and shake hands. He told Tesla that when science meets the consciousness field of Vedanta written 7000 years ago, the last frontier of science can be breached.
I think that time has come to understand this profound truth , but this is possible only after understanding the concept of MAYA in Hinduism.
The universe is filled with an incomprehensible amount of energy and substance , most of which is imperceptible to our physical senses. Radio waves, microwaves, infrared waves and microscopic particles are just a few examples of the infinite aspects of reality that elude the perception of our 5 senses.
Our 5 senses serve as a filter allowing us to experience only what is absolutely necessary for our physical existence. The 5 senses create the set for the stage we call our lives. The senses squelch out , let we will have a breakdown due to excess information.
Maya is invisible and beyond sense-perception. No human can see beyond the quantum screen .
Dvaita Hinduism tells us about the duality of nature and existence . These dual poles of Tamas –Rajas ( Yin Yang ) are connected via consciousness. It is about the quantum possibility wave vibration between two poles.
This guarantees change, growth and evolution Lessening of Yin- always results in increase of Yang and vice versa. One cannot exist without the other and they are mutually dependant . Balance can never be permanent— Yin and Yang continuously devour each other – and life flows on.
Lila is a way of describing all reality, including the cosmos, as the outcome of creative play by BrahmAn, the intelligent empty space in which the electrons in an atom whiz around.
ONLY BRAHMAN CAN CREATE PERPETUAL MOTION
Maya may be understood as the phenomenal universe of perceived duality ( Dvaita Vedanta ) , a lesser reality-lens superimposed on the unity of BrahmAn ( Advaita Vedanta )
