"Determinate knowledge and illusion are contradicted with each other, yet they are inalienably related with each other. Knowledge is self-illuminated and eternally real whereas, illusion is the understanding of one thing as another. For example, identifying a rope as a snake is an illusion. It happens due to the failure of discriminating a knowledge from another by the cognizer. Thus, it is stated that all illusions are subjective. Source:"
