Why should God make us run About ?
It is his will that we should run about a little. Then it is great fun. God has created the world in play, as it were. This is called Mahamaya, the Great Illusion. Therefore one must take refuge in Divine Mother, the cosmic power itself. It is she who has bound us with the shackles of illusion. The realization of God is possible only when those shackles re severed.
One must propitiate the Divine Mother, the Primal Energy, in order to obtain the God’s grace. God Himself is Mahamaya, who deludes the world with her illusion and conjures up with the magic of creation, preservation and destruction. She has spread this veil of ignorance before your eyes. We can go into the inner chamber only when She lets us pass through the door. Living outside we only see other objects, but not that Eternal Being. Existence-Knowledge-Bliss Absolute. Therefore it is stated in the Purana that dieties like Brahma praised Mahamaya for the destruction of the demons Madhu and Kaitabha.
