Intuition and knowledge


Advaita teaches that all knowledge pertains to the mind, where the pair subject-object is a constitutive element. Ultimate reality cannot be known in that way; the only way to “know” it is by being it. For that to happen, the sense or feeling of being a separate individual has to disappear. It is an intuitive understanding… In advaita everything (as expression) is paradoxical. Mind is an instrument of the Self, but it is not other than the Self.
