Until and unless the seeker realizes the fact that 'I' is not the self, he bound to remain in the clutches of experince of duality. 'I' which appears and disappears as Waking or dram experiences and disappears as deep sleep.

When self is not the body, who or what witness the appearance and disappearance of the three state? The knower of the three states is within the three states as its invisible substance, and it is apart from the three states, as its invisible witness. It is apart because it is not and entity or identity within the experince of duality.

People who are stuck believing the 'I' as self and perceive the world as a a person, are in ignorance of reality of the fact, that the birth,life and death are mere mirage, on the standpoint of the invisible witness, which is the spirit or Ataman.

The world becomes myth only when the world is viewed and judge on the base of Ataman or spirit, which is the true self.All the theories are remain reality only on the false identity. When the spirit is self the whole experince diversity is mere mirage.

Only when the body is viewed and judged on the false physical identity the the theory of body and the world created out five element holds good.On the formless true identity which is Ataman the all the three states are mere mere mirage and non-existent. Because of conditioning everyone of us view and judge the worldview on the standpoint of false physical identity we are unable to grasp the reality.

The individual experiences within the Waking experince is part of the mirage similar to the dream experince.

Advith Master Nirakara says : NON DUAL TRUTH WILL BE REVEALED ONLY WHEN ONE IS ABLE TO GRASP THE INVISIBLE SUBSTANCE AND WITNESS OF THE THREE STATES.

CONDUCTS IS NOT THE MEANS TO ACQUIRE SELF KNOWLEDGE. ONE HAS TO HAVE COURAGE TO ACCEPT TRUTH AND REJECT THE UNTRUTH, THAN IT WILL LEAD THE SEEKER TOWARDS WISDOM.

As Nisargdutta Maharj said until one thinks one is individual apart from the world he will not be able to grasp the truth.

And Nisargdutta Maharaj mentoned clearly that he indulges in Bajan and worship and devtion as directed by his Guru.Siddharameshwar Maharaj to help the mass who are incapable of assimilating the self-knowledge. Therefore the incapable one's has follow the path of devotion. The rest has to indulge in pursuit of truth.
