Vaisnavi Mudra

Technique

Pramana: Śāstra Pramāṇa - शास्त्र प्रमाण

Sastra Pramana Source: Yoga-Sikhopanishad (5, 14)

Original Verse: "अन्तर्लक्ष्यं बहिर्दृष्टिर्निमेषोन्मेषवर्जिता । एषा सा व्ऐष्णवी मुद्रा सर्वतन्त्रेषु गोपिता ॥ १४ ॥"

Transliteration: "antarlakṣyaṃ bahirdṛṣṭirnimeṣonmeṣavarjitā | eṣā sā vaiṣṇavī mudrā sarvatantreṣu gopitā ॥ 14 ॥"

Translation: The external vision of the Yogin, when it becomes fixed only on the one object in the interior, (with the mind concentrated on the Viraj, Sutratman, Blja or the Turiya in the Muladhara, Anahata, Sjfia or Sahasrara) and in consequence devoid of shutting or opening the eyelids, this is the reputed Vaisnavi Mudra, which is well preserved as a secret in all the Tantra-s.
