A Conscious Being

When we transcend the fetters of the Yoga BodyMind
   ... we arrive at this transcendental state
       ... of the Conscious Being,
            ... not yet the Universal Conscious Being,
      ... but always closer.

In the world of Tantra,
    ... transcend does not mean denying the material universe!
        ... but to first fully experience the material universe,
            ... and thence to move beyond
        ... without being attached to it.

The Buddha,
   … one with the Buddhi,
.... functioning at peak potential,
    … Awakened after much harsh Tapas,
     ... how to become this Conscious Being.

So we move beyond
   ... the Annamaya-Kosha of the material universe
   ... the Pranamaya-Kosha of the energy body, and even
   ... the Manomaya-Kosha of the mental body
   ... and now the first stage of Enlightenment!
