Nirguna-akasha

Nirguna-akasha

Nirguna-akasha is a quality-free space. The initial level of perception of vyoma as dissolution, which is a foundation for the experience of subsequent levels of akasha awareness.

The practice of this akasha begins with the realization of a transparent, empty space that encloses everything that perception can capture. Both the body and surrounding objects appear permeated by this void. One should himself, separately from all thoughts and feelings, be aware of self as being contemplative. Gradually, emptiness balances all forms of perception, absorbs them, prevails over them. Such a space is the first among the variety of akashas, pure and formless, which is guna-rahita (without qualities), which is avyakta-prakriti (not manifested material nature). In tantric texts yogi who is experiencing this vyoma is called prakritilayan; the yogi dissolves in the source of creation that has no qualities.
