Some slokas from today’s lecture:

sarvendriya-guṇābhāsaṁ sarvendriya-vivarjitam
asaktaṁ sarva-bhṛch chaiva nirguṇaṁ guṇa-bhoktṛ cha [BG 13.15]

na rarājoḍupaś chhannaḥ sva-jyotsnā-rājitair ghanaiḥ
ahaṁ-matyā bhāsitayā sva-bhāsā puruṣo yathā

(Śrīmad Bhāgavatam: 10.20.19)

nāhaṁ prakāśaḥ sarvasya yoga-māyā-samāvṛtaḥ
mūḍho ’yaṁ nābhijānāti loko mām ajam avyayam
[BG 7.25]

avajānanti māṁ mūḍhā
mānuṣīṁ tanum āśritam
paraṁ bhāvam ajānanto
mama bhūta-maheśvaram

(BG 9.11)

na māṁ duṣkṛtino mūḍhāḥ prapadyante narādhamāḥ
māyayāpahṛta-jñānā āsuraṁ-bhāvam-āśritāḥ [BG 7.15]

yasya nāhaṅkṛto bhāvo buddhir yasya na lipyate
hatvāpi sa imā̐l lokān na hanti na nibadhyate [BG 18.17]

From Revealed Truth:
viṣṇu-śaktiḥ parā proktā kṣetrajñākhyā tathā parā
avidyā-karma-saṁjñānyā tṛtīyā śaktir iṣyate

(Viṣṇu-purāṇa: 6.7.61)

Lord Kṛṣṇa’s power has three divisions: His parā-śakti [internal spiritual energy]; His kṣetrajñā-śakti [marginal spiritual energy], which manifests the individual jīva-souls; and His aparā-śakti [material energy]. These three main potencies of Kṛṣṇa are also sometimes known by other names such as the antaraṅga-śakti, taṭasthā-śakti, and bahiraṅga-śakti. All of these energies are activated by Kṛṣṇa’s will for His play and satisfaction.The Divine Couple’s transcendental play with Their paraphernalia, that is, all of Kṛṣṇa-līlā, is part of the chit-śakti [spiritual potency]. The jīva-souls come out from the taṭasthā-śakti for Kṛṣṇa’s play and satisfaction, as well as the creation of the material world. The material environment and the bewilderment of the conditioned souls come from the māyā-śakti [material energy], which is like the Lord’s shadow potency, a reflection of His spiritual energy (chit-śakti).The jīva-souls are the Lord’s marginal potency, taṭasthā-śakti. Taṭa means a shore, the area on the bank of a river between water and land. Taṭasthā-śakti means the Lord’s energy that is situated on the margin between the spiritual and material energy, and can adapt to either environment.

“Chanting after chanting, it will take possession within my everything, then I can feel everything proper and truthful.”
