“This entire universe is functioning for this ‘Knower.’ Unfortunately, the object of this knowledge – the tables and chairs and houses and people, they occupy the central position and we are all after that. Even if the house is still good, what it’ll be in the end is not known. But we are not really working with the change. We are just caught up in different problems. And there is so much suffering. The simplest solution is look for the ‘Knower,’ the Purusha and not the object of knowledge i.e. Prakruti.”

– Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra
