Student: What is real?

Master: The moment you achieve enlightenment, you will realize it.  Before you achieve enlightenment, nothing is real.  Nothing real means that everything is real; but based on our self attachment, we distort everything.  Because of this, nothing is real.  Can you understand?  Everything is here but we distort everything because we define everything according to our self-attachment.  We distort the reality.  That is why nothing is real.
