"Mayametam Taranti Te" - 2 / The Nectar Beyond Maya is a discourse on the importance of devotion given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti in Patna, India. In this discourse, Anandamurti uses clear analogies in order to illustrate the concept of Maya, and the qualities of a spiritual aspirant. [1]


A jiṋánii and a devotee both reach a mango grove. The jiṋánii will count the number of trees, but the devotee will pluck a ripe mango and eat it. The former will hold lengthy discussions on [whey], but the latter will eat up the cream. The jiṋániis will repent, but the devotees will get real bliss. Devotees always act wisely. The jiṋániis tax their brains with different problems of logic of the scriptures, whereas the devotees eat butter churned from the scriptures.[1]

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

In this discourse, the nature of Maya is described as having three principles, and the quality of near insurmountability. Anandamurti states that Maya belongs to Parama Puruśa, is unable to do anything without the wish of Parama Puruśa, and is completely dependent on Parama Puruśa. He also describes Maya as the Cosmic Ocean. He states that safe passage through this Cosmic Ocean can only occur within the shelter of Parama Puruśa. He describes Parama Puruśa as a ship designed to cross this Cosmic Ocean. Anandamurti also defines the qualities of both a jinanii and a devotee, with jinaniis solely having intellectual pursuits, while devotees have only love for Parama Puruśa. He says it is this love which will allow only devotees to board this ship and fearlessly cross this Cosmic Ocean. [1]
