'What is Purusha? Purusha is self-witnessing quality. Self-witnessing quality is the Purusha. And Self-witnessing being a verb, the Purusha is the subject of the verb. Experiencer, experiencing, and experienced—all the three are in unified state, and that unified state has been seen in terms of two qualities, the subject and the object. The subject—the seer—process of seeing, and the object of sight. Seer, seeing, and sight. Knower, knowing, and known. Knower, knowing, and known.   'Knower, knowing, and known is the value, the characteristic quality of the Self of everyone, and when it is awake in its value, when it is knower, knowing, and known. It is Purusha and Prakriti and the result of action, result of Prakriti.   'Purusha and Prakriti are inseparable. Unity and diversity are inseparable. They are two opposite values coming together, but they are inseparable. They are separate, but they are not separate.' —Maharishi, 4 September 2007
