Distinction between Maya and Sanskaras

Baba then distinguished between Maya and sanskaras:

Suppose you are assailed by anger, lust and greed or any bad emotion or feeling. This is Maya’s work. But suppose you feel hungry, thirsty or sleepy, which is due to sanskaras. If you eat, drink and engage in innocent enjoyment, it is not wrong because these are necessary to life. But if you become overpowered with any bad attacks from Maya, then you have to drive them away, saying, “Go away! Get the hell out! There is nothing for you here.”
