For the Love of Maya

Maya is Illusion.  It has the power to make the impossible appear possible.

I started reading Dasbodh which is a series of dialogs between Samartha Ramdas and his disciples.  This morning, I read this:

Prayers, singing praise, and all expressions of devotion cannot exist without the presence of Illusion (Maya).  The meaning of this statement will be known to the experienced ones.
 

Dasbodh, Chpt 1, Sub-Chpt 2.25

Prayers, singing praise, and all expressions of devotion cannot exist without the presence of Illusion (Maya).  Why?

The meaning of this statement will be known to the experienced ones.  Why?  Why will this be known to the experienced ones and why doesn’t he explain what this means?

What do you think these things mean?  Share your thoughts with me in the comments below.  I’ll share what came up for me on Friday.
