Full span of human consciousness: readings and practices from Mandukya Upanishad, Yoga Sūtra, and the Vijñānabhairava Tantra

Dr. Alka Tyagi

In this paper, we shall look into broader definition of Praṇava as given in the Tantric texts and shall describe the techniques and practices of AUM [and other tantric Praṇava-s] with special reference to the Māndukya Upaniṣad, the Yoga Sūtra-s and the Vijñānabhairava Tantra.
AUM, the Praṇava and its correlation with states of human consciousness has been established in the ancient Māndukya Upaniṣad. Later, it was developed in the traditions of Vedanta, Yoga and Tantra-s. The knowledge and realization of AUM (as a mantra) is equated with self-realization. Therefore, we shall look into the practice aspect of AUM with reference to the Māndukya Upaniṣad, Yoga Sūtra and the Vijñānabhairava Tantra.
