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 5’7" 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.
