Why does Gita 7.25 use yoga-maya instead of maha-maya?

by Chaitanya CharanNovember 21, 2014

From Keshava Kashmiri P

Srila prabhupada have many times stated the difference between mahamaya and yogamaya in his purports . but this specific verse of bhagavad gita talks about ,how lord krishna covers his identity from the people who are not devotees (as stated “fools and unintelligent ” ) then why krishna uses a word yogamaya ,and not mahamaya . By yogamaya potency ,krishna’s devotees like gopis ,arjuna ,mother yashoda ,krishna hideS his identity of being supreme lord ,so that he can relish the sweetness of his devotees love in various rasa . whereas mahamaya is specifically used to bewilder atheist and faithless .then wouldn’t it be more appropriate ,if verse 7.25 would have talked about mahamaya

    Great explanations thank you prabhu.

    You said, that Bhagavad Gita doesnt speak much about the spiritual World, are there books which do this ?
