"As long as we remember the Supreme Lord and chant His Name, no Maya will come. When we forget Him, then maya will come. So let us chant the Holy Name-Krsna's Name. The Name and the Named are the same. If we chant the Holy Name, the Supreme Lord, Who is All-Existence, All-Knowledge and All-Bliss, will appear and all maya will go. Keeping the company of the sadhus, we should take a vow never to forget Him. In this way we will be rescued from maya."
About the Author
Swami Bhakti Ballabh Tirtha was born in 1924 in Assam, India. After completing his MA in philosophy at Calcutta University in 1947, he came in contact with his spiritual master, Sri Srila Bhakti Dayita Madhava Gosvami Maharaja. He was then initiated into the Gaudiya Vaisnava school of Bhakti yoga propagated by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, the 15th century master of devotional ecstasy. Since then, he has been a full-time monk. After his spiritual master left this world in 1979 to participate in the eternal lila of Sri Krsna, Srila Tirtha Maharaja became the President of Sri Caitanya Gaudiya Matha, which has over twenty asramas in India alone. Since 1997, His Holiness has been traveling the globe several months a year, enlivening all who come in contact with his sweet personality and message of divine love. To date, his books in English include Suddha Bhakti, Sages of Ancient India, Sri Chaitanya: His Life and Associates, and the Present volume, A Taste of Transcendence.
