Namaste members

Recently while studying the Naradaparivrajaka Upanishad, I noticed the multiple references to the term ‘Turiyatita'. I have also encountered this term more frequently appearing in Tantra texts. Seeing this term appear in the non-mukhya Upanishads that have an explicit Advaita siddhanta begs the question of its position in the Advaita Vedanta tradition, especially when the Mandukya Upanishad has clearly alluded that there cannot be anything ‘beyond’ Turiya. 

Inviting other members in this list to contribute to my learning. Thank you and pranam-s. 

Warmest Regards,
Kathirasan K
