Here thought to start a Chat about Turiya (I’ve only recently heard about). Chanting Mantras with the Om and not realizing the dot in the ॐ symbol means the fourth state:
The Mandukya Upanishad describes Turiya as following:-
“Turiya is not which is conscious of the inner (subjective world), nor that which is conscious of (objective) world, nor that which is conscious of both, not that which is mass of consciousness. It is unperceived (by any sense organs), incomprehensible (to the mind), unrelated (to any object), uninferrable , unthinkable, and indescribable. It is essentially of the nature of consciousness, constituting the self alone, and is the negation of all phenomena; it is the peace, bliss and One without a second. It is known as Turiya. It is Atman, and it is to be realised."
I dont know if this video has anything to do with the topic, but it started playing after I watched the 2nd video I posted, so maybe it ties in,( probably not ):
I like what the guy says at around the 14-16min mark
“you should only offer anmals as sacrifices if you can bring them back to life afterwards”
“those heads around her neck, they represent the different aspects of personality, like anger, and desire, and lust, and greed, and sloth, and so on. Those things that are enemies to spiritual development”
Goddess of Time, Change, Creation, Power, Destruction and Death”
Sounds like not just death, but also ego death.
I like that she is tied to Durga.
Something about her reminded me of Black Tara and Palden Lhamo (the nice lady who @BlessingsDeers introduced me too):
Cool!! Thanks for sharing, both are very informative videos.
At 2:35 interesting to hear Swami Sarvapriyananda say the 4th is not a state. Only the 3 (waking, dreaming, deep sleep) are states of mind because they move, whereas 4th TURIYA ("which is consciousness ") is all the time. “The only reality”. 4th is “the player watching the 3 states”
A strange thing happened shortly before watching these 2 videos i was searching for something in my dream documents & surprised to find one called 4 Phoenix dated 17 Nov 2021. I opened & read but theres no mention of Phoenix. I searched another diary, a journal on this day but no word of Phoenix. Then when watching Swami’s video he talking of 3 and 4 !!
@NightHawk999 Earlier today i was searching for the time when i was shown by a formless Being many of my past lives that id recorded in my old dream records on my old ipad. Like in the photo, i was shocked to see that file labelled 4 Phoenix.
This file doesnt have a dream record. And nothing about 4 Phoenix.
Its titled : SHIFT 17 Nov 21
I write about discovering a secret (like i said earlier on your post about all seeing eye).
Theres just notes about things in the way we write here, using clues.
I write about 1st 2nd 3rd 4th dimensions.
Being in the state of Abiding
The star constellation Orion
Technology changing our DNA
All my files are carefully labelled. Ive never seen this. Like i say the title is SHIFT 17 Nov 21
But outside says
