Devotion needs ignorance as - the basic stage in the divine play

 

Devotion needs ignorance as - the basic stage in the divine play,

If ignorance is removed totally, - God only remains, no entertainment.

If ignorance is removed, - even Mula Maya disappears, no world.

You will disappear since – gross body of matter and inert energy,

Subtle body of three basic qualities – along with soul, causal body,

All three bodies are of Maya, - Maha Maya and Mula Maya only.

Every thing up to Primordial energy – is His creation, His property.

What is there that you can sacrifice – to Him? since you are also

A part of His creation or property only, - using this basic knowledge,

Some clever devotees escape – sacrifice to God covering selfishness.

 

The concept of devotion and – entire divine play disappears,

If you say that you are God and – that this world is unreal to you.

Advaita limited to human incarnation – is extended to every body

For this simple reason only that – one can escape sacrifice to God.

Hence Maya or ignorance is very much – required for devotion.

 

If you realize that your money is – the money of God only,

It means that you are giving to God – because it His money!

If it is your money, you will not give, - is this real sacrifice?

You will give your money to your child – but not to God,

It means God is not even equal to – your child, no point of more,

Hence even if it is the money of God, - God covers you with Maya,

By His Maya, ignorance falls on you, - you think that it is your money.

Now sacrifice comes for test, - God and child compete with each other.

Now the strength of your love to God – comes out with true color.

Ignorance, Tamas, the quality of Shiva, - is the basis of devotion.
