Lalita Sahasranama # 260


supta asti asyah or suptam (=samdavastha), tadvam (=jivah) suptah, tadabhinna sa

Supta, i.e., susupta is explained as that jiva who is merged in the causal body and enjoys sound sleep. The susupti avastha as experienced by the jiva is described in Siva Sutras (I 10) as "I slept happily. I know nothing". Hence in deep sleep ignorance egoism and happiness exist. The soul in this state is called Prajna.
