A vague sense of the Atman-awakening, it is only an imagined perception, that cannot be described as this or that – such a thought also persists.
In fact it is beyond all description.
But a thought persists about the Atman-Brahman, as a something which is Infinite, something that is perfect and pure, something that is Existence-Knowledge-Bliss.
In fact the conception of either the Infiniteness or the sat or the cit may not be precise or well-defined; however there will be an idea of them all.
Until the antaHkaraNaM totally vanishes, some thought or other will continue; and certainly the opinion or bhAvanA about the Atman will also continue to exist.
