To overcome Maya, the bhakta takes shelter under the Mahamantra


Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji


There are two ways to overcome Maya.


The vedantis fight against it whereas the bhakta takes shelter under the Mahamantra


Bhagavat Gita


मच्चित्ता  मद्गतप्राणा बोधयन्तः परस्परम् ।

कथयन्तश्च मां नित्यं तुष्यन्ति च रमन्ति च ॥


तेषां सततयुक्तानां भजतां प्रीतिपूर्वकम् ।

ददामि बुद्धियोगं तं येन मामुपयान्ति ते ॥


तेषामेवानुकम्पार्थमहमज्ञानजं तमः ।

नाशयाम्यात्मभावस्थो ज्ञानदीपेन भास्वता ॥


Constantly applying their mind to Me and with their very lives dedicated to Me these devotees ever rejoice and take delight in enlightening one another about My greatness through discussion of topics such as Devotion to Me and in talking of My virtues and kind disposition.


To these engaged in constant and loving meditation and practice of My Name I bestow the Yoga (gift) of Discrimination (Knowledge or Wisdom) through which they come to me.


Out of compassion for them, dwelling in their hearts as their very self I dispel the darkness born of ignorance by the illuminating lamp of wisdom.


Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :


Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare 
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
