Let me explain
this another way. A mother has her son in the war front, away from her, say in the USA.
She has a grand child too who she is very close to but has not seen
him for many years. The son goes back home to visit his mother.
She asks him about the grand son. The son describes how the
grand son has grown up and is 57" already and is very handsome. What does the
mother ask for.
You guessed it right, a photo. She looks at the photo and
starts crying. The photo is the manifest, in a sense it ia an idol, a murti.
She sees the photo and the photo has disappeared. The grand
son has appeared.
It is real, the tears are the proof. Not only the grand son
has disappeared but in some sense the grand mother has also disappeared.
Only the emotions appear.
