to the Advaita Vedanta philosophy, there is only one thing
in the universe, which it calls Brahman; everything else is unreal
and manufactured out of Brahman by the power of Maya.
reach back to that Brahman is our goal. We are, each one of us,
Brahman, that Reality, plus Maya. If we can get rid of this Maya
ignorance (or illusion), than we become what we really are.
