there are 2 forms of god
1. niraakaar (no shape) which will be understood only when you stop worshipping idols, stop going to temples and look for 'paramatma' in everything and within yourself.
but this form cannot do creation.
so it formed a new shape by imposing few properties on itself
2. and that is saakaar (shaped).
this appears in the shape you desire/worship.
it along with you are within the 'maaya'
people who reached 1st stage will talk about mithya/maaya, but their % is very less.
others who are still struggling in stage 2, will fail to understand
worst part in hinduism is that every idiot wants to be a guru but nobody is ready to takeup responsibility to answer questions and guide people.
unless you cross 2nd stage completely, you wont understand 1st line
