(Sanskrit) One of the regions of the Hindu Lokas (realms).
All the superlative spheres of the cosmic consciousness are classified by the Vedas in the following order: Atala is the first plane, directly emanating from the Absolute. The hierarchies of the Dhyani Buddhas belong to this plane. They are in the state of Parasamadhi or Dharmakaya, a state in which there can be no progress, because they are completely perfect entities who only await the cosmic night in order to enter into the Absolute." - Samael Aun Weor, Igneous Rose
