The answer to this question describes the various siddhis that are achieved when one attains turiya but my question is whether the ability to give shraap (curse, श्राप) is also a type of Siddhi attained or is it something totally different altogether?

  • what is shraap ? I thought it was shaap (curse)

    @ram Both are correct and acceptable. शाप and श्राप.

    @Aman Shraap is not Sanskrit. It's a distortion of Shaap Commented May 28, 2019 at 18:43

  • I think it's possible to curse, as well as since turiya is none other than brahman, that's why Brahmins are called so, since we're brahman, equal to God, doing any harm/malice to turiya, incurs bad Karma. As well as killing a turiya, results in brahmanahatya dosha.
