Favorite Quotes:

Identifying the Self with this non-Self – this is the bondage of man, which is due to his ignorance

…faith, by means of which the Reality is perceived.

In dreams, when there is no actual contact with the external world, the mind alone creates the whole universe consisting of the experiencer etc. Similarly in the waking state also; there is no difference. Therefore all this (phenomenal universe) is the projection of the mind.
