Vignana Bhairava Tantra - 81


Madhya Jihve Spharitasye Madhye Nikshipya Chetanam|
Hoccharam Manasa Kurvaha Tatah Shante Praleeyate||
Placing the tip of the tongue on the upper palate, in the mouth opens up the passage of energychannels that run through the Agnya Chakra (between the eyebrows) and the Sahasrara (Crown centre of the head). Staying in this mudra, which is similar to the Kechari and chanting 'Ha' with the exhalation that follows a deep inhalation, the mind attains to peace.

Vignana Bhairava Tantra - 80

Fix your gaze on an object

Sthoola Rupasya Bhavasya Sthabdham Drishtim Nipathyacha|
Achirena Niraadharam Manah Krithva Shiva Vrajeth||
Take up a gross material object. Sit in front of it or place it before you. Steady your gaze and fix it on the object. Very soon, your awareness merges with the object. The mind thus fixed, attunes to the state of Shiva or the spiritual essence beyond matter. - Swahilya Shambhavi (In Pic. SS focussing on the camera on way up Kali Shila, Himalayas)

Vignana Bhairava Tantra - 79

Meditate on the space within a circle
Upavishyasane Samyak Baahu Krithwardha Kunchithau|
Kakshavyomni Manah Kurvan Shamamaayati Tallayath||
By sitting in the correct posture of keeping the body, neck and head centred and in a straight line, stretching the arms out to form a circle, focus on the circular space formed by the hands. The mind merges in this formation and attains to peace. - Swahilya Shambhavi (Pic. Chaturagiri.)
