Hinduism on Pure Consciousness

When all the worlds come to an end, and all creatures sleep the sleep of oblivion, God with his Spirit is awake in eternity. From the infinite space of his supreme thought, new worlds arise and stir. The whole universe rests in the consciousness of God and to pure consciousness it will return when God wills. – Upanishads
The Self is pure consciousness. Your true self is the purest of pure. It is the witness. - Anandmurti Gurumaa
The average person only experiences three states of consciousness in an entire lifetime. These are deep sleep, dreams and waking state of consciousness. - Deepak Chopra
Existence or consciousness is the only reality…consciousness is the screen on which all the pictures come and go. The screen is real; the pictures are mere shadow on it. - Ramana Maharishi
