2. Turiya: Turiya means a state of clarity and understanding where one knows what is right and what is wrong, etc., a state of discrimination or discrimination between right and wrong.

3. Buddhi: Buddhi means intellect or intelligence, which helps us to understand things in detail, also helps us to discriminate between good and bad things; it also helps us to think logically without any emotional attachment towards anything.

4. Ajnana: Ajnana means ignorance or not knowing something about something; it also means not being able to understand something properly or having no knowledge about it at all.
