What is Yoga and Bhoga at the level of Maya, Maha Maya and Mula Maya?

[Shri Jayesh Pandey asked: Padanamaskaram Swami Ji!]

Swami replied:- At any level, Yoga means awareness or even physical association with the human form of God. Bhoga means enjoyment of fruits of merits and punishments of sins. Maayaa means the illusion due to ignorance of truth that is trapping every individual soul leading to misery. Mahaa Maayaa means the illusion created by God through creation by gifting His own absolute reality to the creation, which cannot be crossed by any soul unless His grace falls on the soul. Mula Maayaa means the first created item from which all types of items appeared and such first and fundamental item is inert energy that is modified into the other two fundamental constituents, which are matter and awareness. Yoga and Bhoga are not related to these three items.
