saddarSanam — verse 33
na vEdmyaham mAm uta vEdmyaham mAm
iti pravAdo manujasya hAsyaH
dRk-dRSya bhEdAt kim ayam dvidhAtmA?
svAtmaikatAyAM hi dhiyAM na bhEdAH
“I don’t know myself” and “I know myself”
such statements of a person are only funny
Are there two selves? one knowing and another known?
The experience is of one self without any difference!
I do not know me. I know me. Such declarations of any person are funny and a matter of laughter. Is it not?
dRk - the seer; and dRSya - the seen; by differentiating, are there two selves? Everyone’s experience is one self. No one sees distinction between seer and seen self.
