Advaita means in Sanskrit "Non-Duality"
It is not a state accessible to via reason, for the ego-bound mind
cannot step outside of the duality of the subject-object relationship.
It acknowledges a single source before and beyond all temporal experiences
and apparent diversity of being. That we are all infinite one.
While reading texts from non-dual systems such as;
Zen, Advaita, Taoism, or Dzogchen...
you will find the affirmation that Self-realization has no promise
other than to release one from the delusional perceptual belief
in a separate self or ego.
This is the meaning of the well known phrase:
"Before enlightenment chop wood and carry water.
After enlightenment, chop wood and carry water."
