Today's Question:-
Pujya Guruji, why are we unable to escape, even for an instant, from the clutches of Maya or delusion?

Shri Shri Guruji's reply:-
That happens only when you lack spiritual education. Only spiritual sadhana and grace can liberate you from the delusion of duality. It is said that even Gods sometimes succumb to the wiles of delusion. If you read the Shiva Purana, you will see many instances where Lord Shiva asks His own divine consort, Parvathi, to descend to the earthly plane and meditate in order to shatter Her delusion. Each place where Parvathi has performed austerities is now a Shakthi Peetha or powerful pilgrimage centre. When you visit such holy shrines, your own attitude of delusion is greatly reduced.
