“Chinmatra cinmatra (Sanskrit) (from chit thought + matra elementary thought, intelligence) Essential thought, mind per se; used in Vedanta”

“Chinmatra cinmatra (Sanskrit) (from chit thought + matra elementary thought, intelligence). Essential thought, mind per se; used in Vedanta philosophy, particularly the Advaita, for the germ of cosmic ideation existing at every geometrical point of the infinite chidakasa (field of cosmic ideation). Not to be confused with collateral Vedantic terms mulaprakriti (undifferentiated elemental cosmic matter) or chidakasa. These three are considered from a subjective standpoint as aspects of parabrahman. In the human constitution it is the seventh principle or atman.
