The verse seems to say that pranayama brings the mind to stillness and turya. But what is exactly this turya? The Maitri – like many other Upanishads – claims that there are three common forms of consciousness – awake, dreaming and deep sleep – known to all human beings. But there is also a fourth condition (turya) of consciousness – a state of consciousness very similar to deep sleep, but where the person is still awake. If we want to understand turya in detail, we need to look at for instance the Mandukya Upanishad. It gives a long list of descriptions of this fourth condition’ (I quote only a few attributes): as unthinkable; as indescribable; as the cessation of the visible world; as tranquil; as auspicious; as without a second. That is the self (atman), and it is that which should be perceived.
Like brahman, turya is beyond words, but it still has some characteristics. Firstly, despite turya being beyond words, it seems connected to a range of positive attributes. Secondly, it is consciousness emptied of content of sensory input, thoughts, emotions and fantasies. It is consciousness devoid of conceptions. Finally, in other passages the Maitri claims that liberation happens in this condition of pure consciousness’: by suppressing the mind, one sees the brilliant self which is much more subtile than the subtile . One becomes self-less the mark of liberation (moksha).VI.20
