Translation

"The element of Air is situated between the two eye-brows, bright like a heap of collyrium, round in shape, consisting of vāyu and associated with the letter ´ya´ (as bīja) and īśvara as presiding deity. One should bring the prāṇa there and maintain it for five ghaṭikās with one-pointed mind. This Vāyavī-dhāraṇā enables a Yogī to move in the space. 15"
