Discussion of the three states. The beauty of Vedānta is that it is based on common experience, not on mystical experience. Pūrṇaanubhava. 2 experiences: being aware of something or being not aware of anything. The states are not in the world. The states are not in time. Avyakta and deep sleep. Dream and waking are both private. Are you the
witness of the dream and the waking state? You are not in time because time is in the states. Is sleep the self? The Bhagavad Gītā has not to be studied sequentially.
Deliberate superimposition Bhagavad Gītā ch. 13, 13. īśvara and māyā. The world is imagined by ignorance. Ramanuja.

What is this world? Does this world exist? Who am I? Is there something like Consciousness? If so, what is Consiousness?
