“O son of Bharata, according to one’s existence under the various modes of nature, one evolves a particular kind of faith. The living being is said to be of a particular faith according to the modes he has acquired.”
Srila Prabhupada’s purport elaborates on this subject of three modes of nature and how we all are carried by them, because all aspects of our lives are connected with the modes of nature and so also our faith. The word sraddha-mayo… maya here means “consisting of” or, as Srila Prabhupada translates it, “full of” or in other words, everyone is full of faith. What does it mean? It means that also the atheist is full of faith. The atheist’s faith is that there is no God. If everyone is full of faith—and we see all kinds of different sorts of faith—then what does that mean? What are some implications?
