Preface

This material world is full of distress because it is controlled and directed by Lord Krsna's external energy, called mahamaya. Therefore there is a constant series of distresses in this material world. Author has mentioned a few critical types of distress in this book, from which every person wants to escape. In reality, the majority of the populace is unaware of the means to avoid this afflictions. Human Form of life is rare and valuable, and wasting it in sense gratification means inviting distress. To escape the Slap of Maya, the author has mentioned some sublime and topmost remedies in this book.

This book gives us the knowledge on - What is maya? How mahamaya, Durga Devi, the superintendent of this material world, works in her dealings? Some think of Durga Devi as the original creator, whereas in reality, she cannot function independently on her own accord to do creation. Primary doer is Lord Krishna, and therefore material energy, mahamaya, is dependent on him, and through this external energy, the material world comes into play.

Mayadevi gives different distress to living entities who have forgotten Lord Krishna, having turned away from him and it's defined as Slap of Maya. In this book, author, presents some examples from the scriptures, seeing which we can learn why and how maya gives distress to living entities. Merely to live in this type of situation and continuously go thru this vicious cycle of birth, death, old age and disease, and keep taking the beating of maya is not necessary. An intelligent person can liberate oneself from the above-described situation.

The author also explains how by surrendering oneself to a bonafide spiritual master in disciple succession and Lord Sri Krishna, one can escape the Slap of Maya. Furthermore, by leading a life according to the scriptural injunctions and by associating with devotees (sadhu-sariga), one can be relieved from the distress and illusion of this material world. Moreover, how one should chant the Holy names of Lord Krishna and perform some service, and thereby receive maya favor by letting the living entity loses from her grip and thus has a peaceful and blissful life. The answer to various questions like above, which can arise in anyone's mind, has been described in this book.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
