The Advaitins have limited the word knowledge to the unreality of the world

You may argue that the knowledge of God is a part of the devotion only and the knowledge of the world as unreal is not required in the path of devotion. The Advaitins have limited the word knowledge to the unreality of the world, because the knowledge of God is only the knowledge of self. The devotees are quite against the Advaitins and hence do not like the knowledge of world to be unreal. In fact, the devotees accept that the world is real. The concepts are overlapped here which cause the confusion leading to fight. The world is to be defined first before examining its reality. The reference to which the world is real or unreal should be also mentioned. Without these two clarifications, the confusion cannot be clarified.
