“Magic” is Childishness

Often the term “magic” is used to portray something wonderful, something misunderstood or not understood, something illusory, or something extraordinary. But the greatest magic of all is that performed by the Supreme Lord. That is real magic. Srila Prabhupada says this about magic: “The yogis want to get these siddhis and declare that he has become God. The same, like the jnani, people are hankering after this magic.” (From a lecture in Mumbai on 24 November 1975).
