Let the sadhka, who has known the effective path of Yoga from his Master, fix his concentrated thought at the heart-space and contemplate the steady flow of nectarine kala, streaming forth from the microcosmic moon within. By the continued practice of such Dharna known as Saumya Dharana, nectarine drops get sprinkled profusely over all parts of his body and around the surroundings. By this Dharana, the sadhaka gets consecrated and established in the highest state of purity.
