"ardhendu-pratimaṃ cakundadhavalaṃ kaṇthe tu tatvaṃ smṛtam yat-pratyūṣa - vakārabījasahitaṃ yuktaṃ sadā viṣṇunā // prāṇaṃ tatra vilīya pañcaghaṭikāś-cittānvitaṃ dhārayet eṣā duḥsahakālakūṭaśamanī syād vāriṇī dhāraṇā // 13 //"

Translation

"The Water element, which is as white as crescent moon and kunda flower (jasmine) is located in the throat, having ´va´as bīja and is presided over by Viṣṇu as deity. One should take the prāṇa there and hold it for five ghaṭikās with one-pointed mind. This is Vāriṇī-Dhāraṇā, which digests severe poisons. 13"
