In Spite Of The Sameness Of Objects, On Account Of There Being Separate Minds They (The Object And Its Knowledge) Follow Different Paths, That Is Why They Are Entirely Different.


The object being the same the difference in the two (the object and its cognition) are due to their (of the minds) separate path.

Sw. Satchidananda

Due to differences in various minds, perception of even the same object may vary.


Because there is a multiplicity of minds [perceiving the object] but yet the object remains consistent, there is a difference in nature between the object and the mind [of the observer].
