  • Realization of the one Self that is every self.
  • Realization of the one Self that is eternally in union with the Divine.
  • Realization of the one Self and release of the small self.
  • Realization of the root of all identification.
  • The complete realization of the one Self completely releases any and all sense of there being a small and apparently separate self.
  • There are levels of realization that transcend self-realization. The culmination of self-realization is the initial realization of THE SUPREME knowing, recognizing, and delighting in THE SUPREME.
  • Realization beyond self-realization includes no-self-realization and apex God-realization, apex I-realization, and apex Source-realization.
  • Enlightenment and turiya also transcend, and include, self-realization.
