….The Self is often mistaken for the knower. Is there not the Self in deep sleep, ie., nescience ? Therefore the Self is beyond knower and knowledge. These doubts are in the realm of the mind. To speak from this point of view, the advice is to keep the mind clear, and when rajas and tamas are wiped off, then the satva mind alone exists. So the ‘I’ vanishes in the satva.

Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharishi, from the classic, ‘Talks’, p 481
