When Did Maya Got Hold of Us?

When did Maya got hold of us(Vibhinnamshas of Krishna)?

This question is futile in a sense because we have always been governed by Maya.

All three elements i.e. Maya, Krishna and Jeevas are eternal.

Jeevas are of three types: Vibhinnamsha(two types) and Swamshas

Swamshas are governers of Swarup power of supreme personality of Godhead. Bramha, Shiva etc are Swamshas and they're infinite in number.

Vibhinnamshas are of two types--type A--eternally liberated and type-B eternally under bondage of Maya.

We belong to type-B souls.

God has not created us nor created Maya either.

Only illusion of Maya is cause of our eternal bondage and suffering. We don't remember our true identity or our true relationship with God and this causes us to get identified with our bodies. We start considering ourselves as bodies and minds and continue to suffer life after life.
