The world is real for the ignorant
as well as for the wise;
for the ignorant the real
is measured by the world,
for one who knows
the real has no limits and
is the foundation of the world.
Both say ‘I’ referring to themselves,
the ignorant and the one who knows.
For the ignorant the self is defined by the body,
the wise knows that within the body the
unlimited Self shines with its own splendour.
