Soul: Dreamer

This topic follows on from my commentary regarding active dreaming in deep sleep, whereby the experience of active dreaming is that which connects our consciousness to the transcendental void.

Vedic literature describes the traversal of the Soul (ātman) over the following conditions of being that correspond to the universal vibration of औं:

“A”: Wakeful (jāgrata) state (avasthā) – the intelligence is transformed by sattva-guna

“U”: Dreaming (svapna) state (avasthā) – the intelligence is transformed by rajo-guna

“M”: Deep sleep (suṣupti) state (avasthā) – the intelligence is transformed by tamo-guna

Silence: The fourth (turīya) state (avasthā), or the transcendental void, described in the Māṇḍūkya Upaniṣad as pure awareness

Dreaming Vishnu

Why औं? Because औं is where the heart is.
