Superimposition does not correspond to something such as a bedsheet covering a cot , as that would limit Brahman to a size.
It is easier to say that Brahman imagines Himself as the world , etc. It is similar to how a child at play imagines himself as a prince.
A lot of thought is required . The only pitfall is that one must not delve into the nature of Maayaa ( as anti-Advaitins) do. Then this very Maayaa starts deluding you!
With Love ,

Perhaps my question is too much basic for this forum,
but I am reading a very interesting explanation of
Advaita Vedanta from the Web Site of Katha, written by
D. Krishna Ayyar.
In the Appendix 2, he said that ...there is no world
or mind of the same order of reality as Brahman, the
paramnartika satyam; both the world and the mind are
superimpositions on Brahman and are categorised as
My question is: If Brahman is Atman in human beins, in
which form Brahman is superimposed on, for example, a
pot? Is D. Krishna Ayyar talking about a phisical,
material superimposition? Can we said that Brahman
live in material things?
Thank you very much for your patience with me...
