Someone enquired about the nature of perception.
M.: Whatever state one is in, the perceptions partake of that state.
The explanation is that in the waking state (jagrat) the gross body
perceives gross names and forms; in swapna (the dream state) the
mental body perceives the mental creations in their manifold forms
and names; in the sushupti (deep dreamless sleep), the identification
with the body being lost, there are no perceptions; similarly in the
Transcendental state identity with Brahman places the man in
harmony with everything, and there is nothing apart from his Self.
