Ordinary knowledge is always accompanied by ignorance, and ignorance by knowledge; the only true Ramanq is that by which one knows the Self through enquiring whose is the knowledge and ignorance.
This is not an easy bhava state, meditation, contemplation.
Being Existenceis not born. For the other, the seen the resting place has become; the One, The Real the Truththe completely Full, shines as formless. Is it not, rather, ignorance to know all else without knowing oneself, the knower?

With it ‘you’ and ‘he’ also perish. The existence of sound and others is a naharshi of the senses made to appear brought to light. That alone is Liberation. If we are bodies, we are involved in time and space, but are we?
