If the Soul, the innermost ‘Self ‘wakes up from the sleep of the ignorance than there is neither body nor the name nor the world exists. Only when the Soul is in ignorance of its true nature the world in which you exist is experienced as a reality. The world in which you exist is a dualistic illusion created out of the consciousness.
