"There is but one infinite Being in the universe, and that Being appears as you and I. What are you and I and all these things we see? Mere self-hypnotism. There is but one existence, the infinite, the ever-blessed One. In that One we dream all these various dreams. It is the Atman, beyond all, the infinite, beyond the known, beyond the knowable. In and through that we see the universe. It is the only reality. That reality is this table, it is the audience before me, it is the wall, it is everything minus the name and form. Take away the form of the table, take away the name, and what remains is that one reality."
- Swami Vivekananda, from “A Study of the Mundaka Upanishad”
