Hi bhutanam.
This pure self has four quarters:
The first is the waking state,
Experience of the reality common to everyone.
The attention faces outwards,
Enjoying the world in all its variety.
The second is experience of subjective worlds,
Such as in dreaming.
Here the attention dwells within,
Charmed by the mind's subtler creations.
The third is deep sleep,
The mind rests, with awareness suspended.
This state beyond duality,--
From which the waves of thinking emerge,
Is enjoyed by the enlightened as an ocean of silence and bliss.
The fourth, say the wise, is the pure self alone.
Dwelling in the heart of all,
It is the lord of all,
The seer of all,
The source and goal of all.
