"Maya is always striking"

Advaita: Swamiji, last night our window was broken. Was that maya striking at us?
Prabhupada: Hm?
Advaita: Last night my window was broken. Was that maya striking?
Prabhupada: Yes.
Advaita: Kids broke the window?
Prabhupada: Yes. Maya is always striking. Why do you take only a window? Why do you compact maya in the window? He is without window, within the window. Maya is not only limited to a certain extent. The whole world is maya. Jagan mithya. The whole universe is maya. Only that part is not maya where the chanting Hare Krsna is there.
Devotees: Haribol. Hare Krsna.
Prabhupada: As soon as there was some slacking in Hare Krsna the maya struck. [laughs] Yes. Yes.
