we have to eradicate maya. Maya in any form – those in the renounced order once they get rid of the gross attachments, then the subtle things start to attack. And we have to refine our devotional service till we get to the purest state. So we are practicing the same, it just gets more difficult to differentiate the more subtle that maya becomes. Sometimes you cannot tell what is maya and what is not because renunciation is very similar to devotional service. But even to renounce something which is favorable to devotion is also material.
