Passage

Maya or Avidya is not pure illusion. It is not only absence of knowledge. It is also positive wrong knowledge. It is a cross of the real and the unreal. It is indescribable. It is neither existent nor non-existent nor both. It is not existent for the existent is only the Brahman. It is not non-existent for it is responsible for the appearance of the Brahman as the world. It cannot be both existent and non-existent for this conception is self-contradictory. It is called neither real nor unreal. It is false or mithya. But it is not a non-entity like a hare՚s horn. It is positive. It is potency. It is also called superimposition. A shell is mistaken as silver. The shell is the ground on which the silver is superimposed. When right knowledge arises, the error vanishes. The relation between the shell and the silver is neither that of identity nor of difference nor of both. It is unique and is known as non-difference. Brahman is the ground on which the world appears through Maya. When right knowledge dawns the essential unity of the jiva with the param-atma is realised. Maya and Avidya vanishes.
