OM! - This Imperishable Word is the whole of this visible universe. Its explanation is as follows: What has become, what is becoming, what will become, - verily, all of this is OM. And what is beyond these three states of the world of time, - that too, verily, is OM.<br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty=""><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;">Sarvam hyeted brahma; ayamātmā brahma; </span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;">soyamātmā chatuá¹£hpāt.</span><br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty="">2. All this, verily, is Brahman. The Self is Brahman. This Self has four quarters.<br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty=""><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;">Jāgaritasthāno bahihprajñah saptānga</span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;">ekonavimśatimukhah sthÅ«labhug vaiśvānarah</span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;">prathamah pādah.</span><br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty="">3. The first quarter is Vaiśvānara. Its field is the waking state. Its consciousness is outward-turned. It is seven-limbed and nineteen-mouthed. It enjoys gross objects.<br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty=""><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">Svapnasthāno'ntah-prajñah saptānga ekonavimsatimukhah</span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">praviviktabhuk taijaso dvÄ«tiyah pādah.</span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><br _moz_dirty="">4. The second quarter is taijasa. Its field is the dream state. Its consciousness is inward-turned. It is seven-limbed and nineteen-mouthed. It enjoys subtle objects.&nbsp; <br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">Yatra supto na kancana kāman kāmayate;</span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">na kancana svapnam paśyati tat suá¹£huptam.</span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">suá¹£huptasthāna ekibhÅ«tah prajñānāghana evānandamayo</span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">hyānandabhuk cetomukhah prājñas-tṛtÄ«yah pādah.</span>&nbsp; <br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty="">5. The third quarter is prājña, where one asleep neither desires anything nor beholds any dream: that is deep sleep. In this field of dreamless sleep, one becomes undivided, an undifferentiated mass of consciousness, consisting of bliss and feeding on bliss. His mouth is consciousness.<br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty=""><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">Eá¹£ha sarveśvara eá¹£ha sarvajña eá¹£ho'ntaryāmyesha&nbsp; </span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">yonih sarvasya prabhavāpyayau hi bhÅ«tānam.&nbsp; </span><br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty="">6. This is the Lord of All; the Omniscient; the Indwelling Controller; the Source of All. This is the beginning and end of all beings.<br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty=""><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">Nāntah-prajñam, na bahih prajñam, no'bhayatah-prajñam na</span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">prajnañāghanam, na prajñam, na-aprajñam;&nbsp; </span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">adriá¹£htam-avyavahārayam-agrahyam-alakshanam-acintyam</span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">avyapadeśyam-ekātmapratyayasāram prapancopaśamam</span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">śāntam, śivam-advaitam caturtham</span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">manyante, sa ātmā sa vijñeyah.&nbsp; </span><br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty="">7. That is known as the fourth quarter: neither inward-turned nor outward-turned consciousness, nor the two together; not an indifferentiated mass of consciousness; neither knowing, nor unknowing; invisible, ineffable, intangible, devoid of characteristics, inconceivable, indefinable, its sole essence being the consciousness of its own Self; the coming to rest of all relative existence; utterly quiet; peaceful; blissful: without a second: this is the Ātman, the Self; this is to be realised.<br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty=""><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">So'yamātmā-adhyaksharam-Omkaro'dhimatram, pādā mātrā,</span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">mātrāsca pādā akāra ukāro makāra iti.</span><br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty="">8. This identical Ātman, or Self, in the realm of sound is the syllable OM, the above described four quarters of the Self being identical with the components of the syllable, and the components of the syllable being identical with the four quarters of the Self. The components of the Syllable are A, U, M.<br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty=""><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">Jāgaritasthāno vaiśvānaro'kārah prathamā</span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">mātrā āpterādimatvādvāpnoti ha vai</span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">sarvān kāmānādisca bhavati ya evam veda.</span><br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty="">9. Vaiśvānara, whose field is the waking state, is the first sound, A, because this encompasses all, and because it is the first. He who knows thus, encompasses all desirable objects; he becomes the first.<br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty=""><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">Svapnasthānastaijasa ukāro dvitÄ«ya</span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">mātrotkará¹£hādubhayatvādvotkará¹£hati ha vai</span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">jñana-santatim, samānasca bhavat</span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">nāsyābrahmavit kule bhavati, ya evam veda.</span><br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty="">10. Taijasa, whose field is the dream state, is the second sound, U, because this is an excellence, and contains the qualities of the other two. He who knows thus, exalts the flow of knowledge and becomes equalised; in his family there will be born no one ignorant of Brahman.<br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">Pushuptasthānah prājño makārastṛtÄ«ya mātrā </span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">miterapÄ«ter vā, minoti ha vā idam</span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">sarvam-apÄ«tisca bhavati, ya evam veda.&nbsp; </span><br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty="">11.Prājña, whose field is deep sleep, is the third sound, M, because this is the measure, and that into which all enters. He who knows thus, measures all and becomes all.<br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty=""><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">Amātrascaturtho'vyavahāryah prapancopaśamah sivo'dvaita</span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">evamomkāra ātmaiva, samviśatyātmanatmanam ya evam</span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">veda, ya evam veda.</span><br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty="">12. The fourth is soundless: unutterable, a quieting down of all relative manifestations, blissful, peaceful, non-dual. Thus, OM is theĀtman, verily. He who knows thus, merges his self in the Self; - yea, he who knows thus.<br _moz_dirty=""><br _moz_dirty=""><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold;">Om śantih; śantih; śantih </span><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold;"><br _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold;"><span _moz_dirty="" style="font-weight: bold;">Om Peace!
