If the being of creation literally took these three states to be three different consciousnesses providing three different states of enjoyment he would be in error. We have been talking of borrowing, influence and relationship in rather general terms.

Everything, again, as one gaudaada Ultimate Reality, is unborn; therefore there is no such thing as destruction. There is a mere fascination for unreal things, though there exists no duality. It is seven-limbed and nineteen-mouthed. But it comes back to its pure state when it attains non—attachment, realizing their unreality.

The non perception of duality is common to both Prajna and Turiya. Meditation, contemplation, mantra and prayer finally converge into a unified force directed towards the final stage, piercing the pearl of wisdom called bindu, leading to the Absolute.

That which is non-existent in the beginning and at the end is definitely so in the present [i. Creation is the mere will of the Lord, say those who thought out well the [process of] creation, but those who rely upon time hold that the birth of beings is from time.

The first quarter is vaisvanara. In both deep sleep and “Transcendental Awareness” there is no consciousness of objects but the objective consciousness is present in an unmanifested “seed” form in deep sleep, while it is transcended in Turiya. There is no doubt that the quarters are the same as the letters.

Mandukya Upanishad with Gaudapada’s Karika

Gaudapada deals with perception, idealism, causality, Truth, and Reality. Unlike the all knowing Consciousness Absolute of Turiya. Although all qualities are always present throughout creation the quality of Satwa, equilibrium is seen as desirable. Similarly, nothing whatsoever is born whether it be existent or non-existent or both existent and non-existent.


Likewise, the mind of the waking man is an object of his perception alone. Prajna is a mass of consciousness. That is known as the fourth quarter: Just as when the jars, etc.

The objects, though they bear the mark of the unreal, appear as though real.

GAUDAPADA | mandukya karika

Without entropy this material creation would be an eternal maze of being misled by the senses into believing this duality to be agudapada. Know therefore the enjoyment in three ways. This creation is supported by knowledge and consciousness Absolute and that Absolute is a Singularity is the definite verdict of all the ancient Seers.

Cause and effect have no place or meaning in Turiya. The Self, in regard to Its death and birth, going and coming, and Its existence in all the bodies, is not dissimilar to ether.

Gaudapada-Karika [Sanskrit-English]

The Absolute alone Exists. This state is beyond all empirical experiences.

He who knows the Lord to he ever untouched by them indeed knows all. As long as there is fascination for cause and effect, so long do cause and effect come into existence. Some claim creation is the result of the expansion of the Self, some claim it is a mere magic show, some claim the creation is from God’s desire, some claim Kala time creates all beings.

Without a cause [i. Here ends the Mandukyopanishadincluded karikx the Atharvaveda. The experience termed here as enjoyment is meant as the enjoyment of privilege. That which is without beginning is necessarily free from birth. Thus they quarrel among themselves.

When knowledge is established in Atman it attains birthlessness and sameness. So to answer any questions arising from this apparent conflict we should explain.

Mandukya Upanishad & Karika with Shankara Bhashya – Swami Nikhilananda

Om is Brahmanboth the higher and lower, as well as Ishvara residing in the hearts of everyone, it is both without measure and of unlimited measure, the cessation of duality, it is bliss. Those which are to be abandoned, realised, adopted, and made ineffective should be known first. Thus, the One alone is regarded in three ways. It is ever effulgent and omniscient.

OM should be known, quarter by quarter. The components of the syllable are A, U, M.

Sleep as a State of Consciousness in Advaita Vedanta. There can be no doubt that the non-dual consciousness alone appears in a dream as though dual. It is calm, identical with liberation, Indescribable, and Unborn. The work of Aum in creation is to reveal faudapada Absolute Self and as said this should be the sole object of meditation.

Those that are familiar with the Personal Deity call It the Personal Deity and those that are familiar with the void, the void.

This is the ultimate Truth. From Early Vedanta to Kashmir Shaivism: Having realised the non-dual state that is hard to perceive, deep, Unborn, uniform and serene,we offer our salutations karikw It, as best as we can. This applies likewise to Consciousness, because of the similarity of the appearances.

Hermes tristmegistus On The Mandukya Upanishad with an Advaita commentary from our understanding Verses of the Mandukya Upanishad are traditionally associated with Verses of the Gaudapada Karika.

The word OM is described as imperishable due to it being the sound or name of the Universe. Prana manifests all inanimate objects.
