As Shri Anbushivan said the answer is really Maya. How can real objects fade away into
Maya? How can memories fade away into Maya? Doesn't this contradict advaita that no
object is ever born and any object once known to exist will never cease to exist? I did all of
what you said, moved into a different country, moved into different fields, and memory of my
father faded away while he was living. But the fact that I did not serve him in the last 30
years of his life doesn't fade, and it worries me. Will it help if I meditate on Maya? Can I live
happily thereafter without worrying?
If your teacher said Sachidananda is the tool, that is correct. You don't need any other
tool. Sat is the existence, your parents and all these objects are real and they are Sat. Sat is
the source of Rgveda. The rishi saw this real world and composed Rgveda. Chit is intellect,
which is the source of yajurveda. The yajurvedic priest adhvaryu intelligently manages the
yajna sticking to all time schedules, so we have to use our intelligence in the correct way
(not just follow books and traditions sloppily, however great the traditions are). Ananda is the
source of samaveda, and ananda dissolves everything, including the real world objects.
