Not that there are two of them, sAkshee-A and sAkshee-D.
Just has each person has a single brain and single jeeva,
so also each person has only a single sAkshee.
Two schools have put forward two models of the same sAkshee.
It is sAkshee-D that apprehends and validates Truth.
sAkshee-A is merely a witness to both true and false knowledge.
So, if you think you don't need sAkshee-D, let us know
the apparatus that you use to distinguish between true and false
