The Vel itself reveals yet another great law upon the higher rungs of Yoga. The Vel or Spear is a weapon that tapers into an absolute sharp point and vanishes into nothingness above it. It represents the absolute one-pointed concentration, the unitary Brahmakara Vritti. When the Brahmakara Vritti is held to the exclusion of all other Vrittis, the Jiva ultimately leaps the barrier
between Savikalpa and Nirvikalpa and is merged in the higher state of Turiya, where the Atman alone shines resplendent, and there is no trace of Ajnana or Maya left over.
