~Nirvikalpa~

Nirvikalpa is a Sanskrit term which can be translated as “transconceptual.” The word consists of the prefix nir, meaning “without” or “beyond”; vi, meaning “apart from”; and kalpa, meaning “order.” In yoga, it is defined as the processes of the mind that are wordless, with no thought form or discursive thoughts. It is not unconsciousness, but rather awareness that is simple and natural, beyond order, beyond analytical thinking and beyond time, space and knowledge.
