How can we know the Knower
येन रूपं रसं गन्धं शब्दान् स्पर्शाꣳश्च मैथुनान् ।
एतेनैव विजानाति किमत्र परिशिष्यते । एतद्वै तत् ॥ ३॥
yena rūpaṃ rasaṃ gandhaṃ śabdān sparśāgͫśca maithunān .
etenaiva vijānāti kimatra pariśiṣyate . etadvai tat .. 3..
It is through Atman that one knows form, taste, smell, sounds, touches and carnal pleasures. Is there anything that remains unknown to Atman? This, verily, is That.
Swami Vivekananda Says —
…that Reality is the only thing we know, because in and through It we know everything else; and yet we cannot conceive of It. How can we know the Knower? If we knew It, It would not be the knower, but the known; It would be objectified.[Source]
