A misunderstanding may arise from the statement that there are two realities, the relative and the absolute. The relative is what we experience and the absolute is something out of this world or apart from our experience. That is not so. It is our experience of that one Truth, that is relative and this relative knowledge differs from person to person. Our experience is conditioned by the instruments we use. If we have to know the Truth ‘as it is’, we would have to remove the instruments. Whatever would then remain would be the Truth in its pure form. This ‘seeing’ without eyes and ‘knowing’ without thoughts is ‘sat darsana’. Hence, seeing the Truth is being the Truth. It is not seeing an object apart from the seer.
