In Hinduism and Buddhism, brahma loka is the name of the highest heavenly realm where the gods or celestial spirits live. The term comes from the name of the creator god, Brahman, and the Sanskrit word loka, which means “world,” realm” or “plane of existence.”

Brahma loka is also the term that refers to the three highest realms collectively:

  • Jana loka – the creative plane and home of mystics who transform from subtle bodies to a spiritual state
  • Tapar loka –the home of the four kumars, or spiritual sons of Brahma, and of immortal ascetics.
  • Satya Loka -the highest plane of consciousness or the highest of the heavenly realms. The term comes from the Sanskrit satya, which translates as “truth.” In the eight-limbed path of yoga, satya is one of the yamas, or “personal virtues.” Loka is a Sanskrit word that means “realm,” “plane of existence” or “world.”
