How to defeat Maya: Srila Prabhupada says, ”If simply one decides that “I simply hear of Krsna and nothing more,” then he defeats the maya, simply by determination, that’s all.”………
#Prabhupada: If one simply hears, simply by hearing sincerely, seriously, he becomes perfect. It is so nice. If simply people come here and simply hear Bhagavad-gita and try to understand it, he becomes perfect. But they will not come. As soon as they will hear, “Oh, Swamiji is preaching that I am not God; God is different,” “Oh, don’t come here.” Finish. I have to flatter him that “You are God.” Then he will come. His hearing is disturbed, because there is no flattering words. But if he sticks to hearing only, he becomes perfect. But maya will not allow him to hear: “Oh, please get out. Don’t come here.” Even our students. They remain here for some time, go away. Maya dictates, “Oh, why you are spoiling your time?” But the process is very simple: hearing. But maya will not allow him to accept this simple process.So one has to become very strong.
[Bg. 7.14]. ”This divine energy of Mine, consisting of the three modes of material nature, is difficult to overcome. But those who have surrendered unto Me can easily cross beyond it.”
One who determines, “Yes, I will hear of Krsna, nothing,” then maya cannot do anything. Maya has defeated. If simply one decides that “I simply hear of Krsna and nothing more,” then he defeats the maya, simply by determination, that’s all.
