Maya is just a tool – Vedanta by James Swartz



Published on Feb 19, 2016

This video covers is part of the “Panchadasi 2015” video series and covers the topic of “Maya”. Maya is a teaching tool to understand the difference between objects (Samsara) and our true nature (Nirvana).
There is Maya but it is not real. Mythia (Maya) is not real. This is quite a complicated issue, probably the most difficult one in the whole Vedanta teaching. It is but it is not (in Sanskrit it is called Sat-Asat Vilakshanam). Maya is something other than what exists and something other than what does not exist. That’s why Moksha (liberation) is so difficult to get for most people.
