There are only two things in the whole world (all things in the universe can
be brought under these two headings); the subject and the object (the
enjoyer and the enjoyed, or the experiencer and the experienced, or the
seer and the seen) and they are among themselves the most contrary. Of

seer and the object is mere delusion; thus roars Vedanta.

Science of sciences, thus roars Vedanta.
