The Mandaka Upanishad belongs to the Athara Veda and has three chapters, each of which has two sections. The name is derived from the root ‘mund’ (to shave) as he that comprehends the teaching of the Upanishad is liberated from error and ignorance. The Upanishad clearly states the distinction between the higher knowledge of the Supreme Brahman and the lower knowledge of the empirical world. The Mandukya Upanishad belongs to the Atharva Veda and is an exposition of the principle of Aum as consisting of three elements, a, u, m which may be used to experience the soul itself. It contains twelve verses that delineate four levels of consciousness: walking, dreaming, deep sleep, and a fourth mystical state of being one with the soul.
