Caught up in the coils of change, it is very hard, well-nigh impossible, to realise that one is just the witness of this passing show. But, that is the ultimate stage of the sage, the wise man who has reached the goal. So, the individual sadhaka must try consistently to practice the attitude of witness, the detached observer. Getting a glimpse of the king while he is passing in a palanquin does not make the beggar a king. The jivi must not only know the sakshi the witness supreme, he must become the sakshi. Till then, the sadhaka continues to be a sadhaka. As a matter of fact, so long as 'I' persists, the state of sakshi is unattainable. The sakshi is the inner core of everything, the embodiment of Sat, Chit and Ananda. There is nothing beyond it or outside it.
