Prabhupada about maya (the material illusion)

I found some quotes, which I appreciated very much, by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, about the nature of māyā (the illusion of being the body), and organized them as questions and answers below.

Why do we fall into illusion?


Purport to Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam verse 2.9.1:
The child cries to have the moon from the mother, and the mother gives the child a mirror to satisfy the crying and disturbing child with the reflection of the moon. Similarly, the crying child of the Lord is given over to the reflection, the material world, to lord it over as karmī and to give this up in frustration to become one with the Lord. Both these stages are dreaming illusions only. There is no necessity of tracing out the history of when the living entity desired this. But the fact is that as soon as he desired it, he was put under the control of ātma-māyā by the direction of the Lord. Therefore the living entity in his material condition is dreaming falsely that this is “mine” and this is “I.”
