I read in Guru granth sahib : “By Guru's Grace, a few come to understand; they center their consciousness in the fourth state.”

Can someone explain what is fourth state of consciousness?

Chau Paad -> fourth state, refers to the fourth state of consciousness which is the recommended meditative state in which we can experience God consciousness. The other 3 states are waking state, sleep without dreams and sleep with dreams

Dharam Khand -> means the ‘Realm of Moral Duty’ and is the first spiritual stop on the journey towards Godhead Gyan Khand -> means the ‘Realm of knowledge’ and is the second spiritual stop on the journey towards Godhead Saram Khand -> means the ‘Realm of Spiritual Efforts’ and is the third spiritual stop on the journey towards Godhead Karam Khand -> means the ‘Realm of Grace’ and is the fourth spiritual stop on the journey towards Godhead Sach Khand -> means the ‘Realm of Truth’ and is the fifth and final spiritual realm experienced when a person is in the fourth state of consciousness Simran of Vaheguru Gurmantar kills our thoughts the process of getting to fourth state Please visit mysimran.info Raajas, the quality of energy and activity; Taamas, the quality of darkness and inertia; and Satvas, the quality of purity and light, are all called the creations of Maya, Your illusion. That mortal who realizes the fourth state - they alone obtains the supreme state.(2) (SGGS Ang 1123). Your Power is diffused through the three gunas: raajas, taamas and satva. Through egotism, they suffer the pains of birth and death. Those blessed by His Grace become Gurmukh; they attain the fourth state, and are liberated. (11) (SGGS Ang 1038).

The fourth state of consciousness is called Turya Samadhi. It is a state of deepest sleep whilst awake. It is the most profound state of meditation when you know the unknown, see the unseen and feel the unfeelable.
