Each and everyone of us has an opportunity to practice yoga and enter into deeper states to see for ourselves what is hidden in each of us, where there is anything beyond this flux which we call as our consciousness or awareness. Mere intellectual knowledge does not help us to remain awake in deep sleep. But through yoga, we can learn to be observant and mindful when the mind and body are asleep. Only then we can realize the truth and ascertain whether the Buddha was right or the seers of the Upanishads. When you reach that state, you will realize that the notion of self created by your mind is not your real Self but a superficial individuality sustained by desires and attachmetns. There is a far deeper identity or individuality that is not of this world and not created by thoughts or desires. That is the real Self. Hence the saying, when the world is asleep, the seer is awake and when the world is awake, the seer is asleep.
