The reason is to identify with the Ineffable. It's a shift in identification from the effable (mind-body) to the Ineffable (Consciousness). From the mortal to the Divine. From that which is born and dies to That which is unborn and undying. From that which is ever changing to That which is unchanging.

Tat Twam Asi (That Thou Art)


This verse is a commentary on the famous dictum ‘That Thou Art’, which is the foundation of Vedanta. The word ‘Thou’ does not here mean the mind, but the immutable consciousness which is beyond change. That which changes is perishable because it exists and functions in time and space. The changeless entity is the infinite, imperishable Self which is the witness of all the changes of the mind and the body, and the word ‘Thou’ in the great sentence (mahavakya) under consideration refers to that consciousness.
