namas tubhyam bhagavate
na yatra sruyate maya
My obeisances unto You, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the Absolute Truth, the Supreme Soul, within whom there is no trace of the illusory energy, which orchestrates the creation of this world.
The word sruyate is significant here. Sruti, or Vedic literature, consists of authorized statements made by the Lord Himself or His enlightened representatives. Thus neither the Lord nor recognized spiritual authorities would ever say that within the Absolute Truth, the Personality of Godhead, there is the fault of illusion. Srila Sridhara Svami points out that the word brahmane here indicates the Lord is full in Himself, and that the term paramatmane indicates He is the controller of all living entities.
Thus within the supreme being, complete in Himself and omnipotent, we do not find any jurisdiction of the material, illusory energy.
