"The spirit soul is pure. He does not have any bondage. Material bondage means that a living entity is bewildered by maya and proudly considers his subtle body, which is received from maya, as himself. Therefore, material bondage of the living entity is not factual. Forgetting one’s constitutional position is like the illusion of seeing wealth where there is none or seeing a person without a head."
Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, Sri Bhagavata-arka-marici-mala, 7.22
