Do all three bodies cease to exist/merge with Brahman in Turiya state? If so, is astral travel or projection no longer possible since the subtle body no longer exists, but merges with Brahman?

  • In turiya, there is nothing but brahman, according to advaita. It is a non-dual state. There is no place to travel. Other schools might have different views.

  • What about siddhis, such as seeing with third eye? Or does everything ceases to exist except brahman, since everything else is "maya"?

  • siddhis are results of practice of yoga of Patanjali. They are lower stages. Turiya is staying sahaja samadhi ie at the highest level : asamprjnata samaadhi which is equivalent to Nirvikalpa Samadhi of vedanta. Ramana Maharshi is believed to remain in the Turiya state most of the time, but He did not perform miracles excepting very few cases

  • I was originally turiya from birth (saraswat havyaka Brahmin) but I was food poisoned(maybe pitru dosha), which sealed my soul. In turiya state, if I know correctly soma is being produced every single second by heaven in our brain, then distributed throughout body via Chakras, nadis, so is it not possible to astral travel when soma is produced in our brain?

  • In advaitic term somebody goes to turiya state and came back means he is still not self realized, the self realized should already be dead because he is already bhraman and worship such advaitic brahman is idotic because there is only one brahman, than brahman should be worshiped instead of person who is still identified.. with ahamkara..
