“Eventually Maya Will Fail To Attract You.”




Revatinandana: Prabhupada, if we are performing actions, if we are acting, like preparing offerings for Krsna by our work, but while we are doing this work our mind is not engaged in Krsna all the time, thinking about Krsna all the time, we fall into maya, but we’re still doing the work, eventually by performing the work and offering the offering…

Prabhupada: Yes. The important thing is that you’re working for Krsna. That is important. You see? And maya is calling; that is not very important. If you engage yourself, keep yourself engaged in Krsna’s activities, then maya, even calling, she will not be, I mean, able to call you back. She will call. That is quite natural. But you stick to your business. Mam eva ye prapadyante mayam etam taranti te [Bg. 7.14]. You will find in the Seventh Chapter. If we stick to the principle of Krsna consciousness, maya will not be able to react upon us.

Revatinandana: That means that eventually we’ll stop being distracted?

Prabhupada: Yes. Eventually maya will fail to attract you. She will fail.You will not fail.
