Atiga (अतिग) refers to “one who passes beyond” (both sleep and waking), according to the the Amanaska Yoga treatise dealing with meditation, absorption, yogic powers and liberation.—Accordingly, as Īśvara says to Vāmadeva: “[...] In sleep, a portion of consciousness is lost and in wakefulness, there is grasping at sense objects. The wise know that there is an inner reality beyond sleep and wakefulness. The knowers of the highest reality know that the highest reality is beyond the duality of existence and non-existence, passes beyond (atiga) [both] sleep and waking [svapnajāgaraṇātigam] and is free from dying and living. [...]”.
