Consciousness: Turiya State of Meditation

Turiya, also known as the fourth state of consciousness, is a concept in Hindu and Yoga philosophy that represents the highest state of awareness. Unlike the other three states of consciousness - waking(Jagrut), dreaming(Swapna), and deep sleep(Sushupti) - Turiya transcends all dualities and limitations, and represents the pure, unchanging essence of the self.



The word "Turiya" comes from the Sanskrit language which means "the fourth." It is referred to as the fourth state because it transcends and encompasses the other three. In other words, while we may experience moments of waking, dreaming, and deep sleep, the Turiya state remains unchanging and unaffected by these experiences.


Turiya is often described as a state of pure awareness, free from all thoughts, emotions, and experiences. It is a state in which one is fully present and awake to the present moment, aware of the true nature of the self and the universe. In this state, one experiences a profound sense of unity with all that exists and a deep connection to the source of all creation.

Achieving the Turiya state requires a deep level of self-awareness and spiritual practice. This can be achieved through practices of meditation with complete dedication towards the divine, This is the state where you receives the compassion, wisdom and knowledge of self. Here you experience the state of thoughtless awareness, you becomes detached to all ill desires. As one becomes more aware of the nature of the self and the universe, they gradually come to experience the Turiya state more frequently and for longer periods of time.


Turiya is a concept that represents the ultimate goal of spiritual practice. It is a state of pure awareness, beyond the limitations of the mind and body, that offers a glimpse into the true nature of the self and the universe. Through dedication and practice, one can experience the transformative power of the Turiya state and awaken to the infinite potential of the human spirit
