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