Most postings previously appearing in this blog are now included in my collection Autobiography Passed Through the Sieve of Maya.
Maya is the veil that covers our real nature and the real nature of the world around us. It's like dense clouds that prevent us from seeing the sun. Our clouds appear as egotism, selfishness, hatred, greed, lust, anger, ambition. When the clouds disperse, we become aware the sun has been there all the time. Vedanta Society of Southern California.
