The final release can be achieved if we access the turīya in the mind, and this can ‘transport’ the soul to the Unknown region, ambh, ruled by the Brahmn.
THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE VEDAS
Each region has its own body of knowledge and it is called the Veda. The first svar or vowel ‘a’ stands for Atharva Veda that explains the mysteries of the ambh. The second vowel and the third vowel ‘i’ and ‘u’ combine to give Yaju Veda for the ‘ya’ semi-vowel contains the ‘i’ sound. The knowledge of marīchi is in the Yaju – śukla (light) and the mar is expounded upon in the Yaju – krisna (dark). The fourth vowel is ‘ṛ’ (pronounced ‘ri’) and the richa of Rig Veda are replete with the rhythms of the visible universe, āpo. The Sām Veda is to do with sva, the mind and contains that which feeds the inner self.
This then is the big picture of Consciousness. I have tried to trace its scientific basis from matter to mind and looked at the equivalent concepts in the Vedas and the Upanishads. I can see the convergence and the amalgamation of these two lines of intense human endeavor into a new theory of dimensions.
