Just as the dream entity and the dream universe in the dream,is an illusion, which appeared and disappeared, for the realized one, this waking entity and the waking world,is mere illusion created out of consciousness because he is fully aware of the fact that the self is neither the waking entity nor the dream entity but the formless knower of the three states.
When the waking entity and the waking world are mere illusion then the experience birth,life,death and the world are mere illusion created out of consciousness. These beings so, how can Prarabdha,come along with birth,when birth itself takes place within the illusion?
Ignorance prevents one from seeing the truth.Ignorance is the cause of the illusion. Illusion is cause of the universe. Universe is cause of experiencing birth, life and death as reality. Until one becomes aware of the fact that, the universe, which is in the form of mind, is myth, it is impossible to assimilate the self-knowledge.
If there is no ignorance, then where can be the universe be?Seeing myth instead of truth, due to utter confusion, one only sees this universe, without realizing the reality.
Once the real nature of the “true Self” is realized,the“Universe” will not be seen as real. Once knowledge of the “true Self” is gained and one establishes in his formless true identity ,which is consciousness , then the birth, life, death and the universe will never remain as reality .
