Essenes of Mandukya Upanishad – four levels of consciousness, with respect to “Om” and ego are given below – 1. Wake (Jagrat) state, where full ego gets identified with gross material body and karma comes into play, because “I” becomes doer and enjoyer. This is A of AUM. 2. Dream sleep (Swapana) state, partial ego gets identified with casual body and subtle body. No doer and only enjoyer remains. This is U of AUM. 3. Deep sleep (Shusupti) state (no dreams), dormant ego gets identified with casual body and there is neither a doer nor enjoyer. Maximum peace without senses… Read more »

Infinite. There are degrees of consciousness, depending on how much you are conscious of simultaneously, how ‘high’ you are, how big your ‘overview’ is, how many of your synapses are firing simultaneously – when jesus talked of when your eye is single and your body full of light, he was refering to a pretty high level of simultaneous synaptic firing researching and ruminating a page of finnegans wake is a great way of getting those synapses firing – the great darkness of the puzzle arouses the subconscious, the ‘memory greater than our memory’ [ = mnemosyne, mother of the muses]… Read more »

The human mind has divided conscious awareness into many “levels”. I prefer to see consciousness as an ever expanding awareness of what is. The word “levels” is misleading and causes a great misunderstanding in how consciousness moves through life. This is an example of the divisiveness of the human mind. In our attempt to “understand” the universe the human mind continually divides what is into separate and unworkable pieces. We do not necessarily progress through levels as if climbing a ladder leaving the lower steps behind as we climb. The expansion of conscious awareness is more like the Blob from… Read more »

The main chakras of the human ‘energy anatomy’ would comprise at least 7 levels eg base, crown. Chakras themselves are interpenetrated by energy ‘bodies’ eg etheric, mental.

Jayarama is right: Waking,Dreaming and sleeping are the three state of consciousness we all undergo routinely in a 24 hours a day’s cycle and during meditation and/or in “peak experiences” we get into fourth state of consciousness called turiya that is qualitatively different from the other three states wherein there is deep rest/relaxation even more than in the restful sleep and yet there is intense alertness too(hence some physiologist called ‘paradoxical state’). Spiritual Scholars also speak of Individual Consciousness,Social Consciousness,Universal Consciousness,Cosmic Consciousness and God Consciousness. Sigmund Freud distinguished three: Consciousness referring to all that we aware of in any given… Read more »

There are four states of consciousness called Avastas in vedic knowledge.

1) jagrat, the waking state;
2) svapna, the dream state; astral consciousness
3) sushupti, the state of dreamless sleep; and, highest, subsuperconsciousness,
4) the turiya, consciousness on interior planes.

You can overcome these states by enchanting aum kara

Akara overcomes Jagrat
Ukara overcomes svapna
Makara overcomes sushupti
Turiya by amatra …-
