WAKING, DREAMING, DEEP SLEEP AND THE ABSOLUTE - PART 22


Disciple: Why should not the Self be both witness and experiencer of the three states?  


Master: Just as the witness watching two men fighting with each other does not fight himself, so also the witness cannot be the experiencer. 


Again as the fighter does not simply watch the fight but himself fights, so also the experiencer cannot be the witness. 


Therefore the same Self cannot be both the experiencer and the witness. 


 –        ADVAITA BODHA DEEPIKA


Remember, to know Yourself, return to the silence before words.
