Two Notes On Vidyaranya's Allegory

Vidyaranya’s Cave is like Plato’s Cave’s cave. The five sheaths are true Advaita myth and not scientific at all. They’re for seeing through Maya, not dissecting her.

And five can do as three just as well. For mind is the tool of existence, intellect is the hand of consciousness, and happiness is the heart of bliss. In this way, they mirror satcitananda as one.
