I am currently reading Sadhanas From the Ribhu Gita by Swami Shantananda. In chapter 5 (Page 34 of http://swamishantanandapurimaharaj.org/publications/Sadhanas-from-Ribhu-Gita.pdf), have come across the term Brahman (ब्रह्म) Tarapanam. I haven't come across this term before or find it's meaning.

    The simple meaning of brāhmaṇatarpaṇa would be tarpaṇa (the feeding or satisfying) of Brāhmaṇa... can you link the exact verse where u read this so that the context can be known?

  • From Chapter 5. - A Fire sacrifice to please the Brahman or the self. "... I am a mass of bliss. I am the entire void. I am both the external and impermanent objects. This is Brahman Tarapanam. I am the infinite space of Consciousness. I am the Atman. I am always content with myself. I do not need anything else. This is Brahman Tarapanam. I am subtler than the space. I am totally non-existent-existent. I give light and reveal all objects. This is Brahman Tarapanam."
