Mandala Brahmana Upanishad Teachings

Vacating all the thought waves and keeping the mind blank like vacant sky and contemplating on paramatma one is freed. When the mind gets absorbed in its own inherent bliss, then we attain yogamudra known as Sambhavi. The cessation from all action is the true Avahana (the real invocation to God), true jnana or wisdom is the seat of the God of Self, a pure and blissful mind is the water by which that Diety’s feet are washed. There are five kinds of celestial Shunya (ether) which are increasingly more subtle: akasham, parakasham, Mahakasham, Suryakasham and Parmakasham. The infinite light permeates all of these akasham, but the Parmakasham is ineffable and is brimming with infinite bliss. It is the essential element.
