THE REAL SELF  | PART 09 OF 14 | IWGR I | RAMA राम

Well , mark here , even in the deep sleep state , where the intellect ceases , where the intellect is , as it were , like a garment hoisted on a peg , hoisted on a post , like an overcoat , the intellect is taken off and placed upon the post , you are still there , you do not die out .

The youth said , " The intellect is not there , and I do not die out . This I do not quite comprehend . "

Well , the youth was asked , " When you wake up after enjoying this deep sleep , when you wake up , do you not make such statements , ' I enjoyed profound sleep tonight , I had no dreams tonight . ' Do you not make remarks of that kind ? "

The youth said , " Yes . "

Well . This point is very subtle . All of you will have to listen closely . When after waking up from the deep sleep state , this remark is made ,

" I slept so soundly that I saw no dreams , I saw no rivers , no mountains , in that state there was no parent , no house , no family , nothing of the kind ; all was dead and gone ; there was nothing , nothing , nothing there . I slept and there was nothing there . "

This statement is like the statement made by the person who bore witness to the desolation of a place , and said ,

" At the dead of night , at such and such a place , there was not a single human being present . "

That person was asked to write out this statement . It was put on paper . The magistrate asked ,

" Well , is this statement true ? "

The person said , " Yes . "

" Well , is this statement made on hearsay or founded upon your own evidence , are you an eyewitness ? "

The person said , " Yes , I am an eyewitness . This is not based on hearsay . "

" You are an eyewitness that at the time mentioned on the paper and at the place mentioned on the paper , there was not a single human being present ? "

The person said , " Yes . "

" What are you ? Are you a human being or not ? "

The person said , " Yes , I am a human being . "
