Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 3 Text 33

sadrsam cestate svasyah
prakrter jnanavan api
prakrtim yanti bhutani
nigrahah kim karisyati

sadrsam--accordingly; cestate--tries; svasyah--by his own; prakrteh--modes of nature; jnana-van--learned; api--although; prakrtim--nature; yanti--undergo; bhutani--all living entities; nigrahah--repression; kim--what; karisyati--can do.


Even a man of knowledge acts according to his own nature, for everyone follows the nature he has acquired from the three modes. What can repression accomplish?


The last sentence in today's purport is; Thus one may be freed from the clutches of Krsna's maya.

I tend to think in terms of maya being opposed to Krishna. Here Srila Prabhupada reminds me that everything is arranged by the Lord. Even maya!
