There is some time(weather), we had proposed the practice of this Dhârana

And you left back home with the image of Mukti Yantra.

But it is difficult to remember exactly its technique!

Here we are, in detail, Emmanuel Dangreville's proposition, nâtha yogi


The yogi settles down comfortably there sat(based), in the perfect posture or of the lotus, (siddhasana, padmasana) approximately in a meter of the yantra (size(format) A4) hung on(collided) on a wall, at eye level. The stable posture is uninhibitedly held in a perfect immobility.

The first stage consists closed eyelids, to let the breath calm down. For some minutes, observe the respiratory movements without trying to intervene.

Install(Settle) a natural breath which leads(infers) a state of reassurance and susceptibility.

The second stage, which lasts about ten minutes, begins when we open eyelids, to fix in a stable way the geometrical figure.

Successively, follow by maintaining the eye fixation(binding), the outline of every face(figure) by leaving from the outside inward, to end in the center.

In the order

The first line(feature) of the outside surrounding wall(speaker), by leaving of the top.
The second line(feature), the inside of the surrounding wall(speaker).
The octagon.
The circle.
The hexagon.
The big triangle, the point(headland) below.
The small triangle clocks at the top.
The square.
In the center of the yantra, the point.

Arrived at this level, to redo several times the progress always in the same order from the outside inward.

The third stage of this concentration, consists in fixing the center while having a vision of the whole yantra, during about ten minutes. All the diagram has to appear clearly.

In previous both stages, the eye fixation(binding) must be maintained but that no visual jamming intervenes. This last one being bound(connected) to a problem of distance which it is easy to correct with a little of experience(experiment).

The fourth stage which is the outcome of the previous ones, consists for ten minutes in resuming(taking back) the phases 2 and 3 in the order, but this time this closed eyelids.

More the concentration is intense and more evident, will be the perception(collection) of the yantra.

End this concentration by reintroducing gradually a voluntary, deep, aware(conscious) breath in the vertebral axis.

- Inspiration of the base at the top of the skull.

- Expiration of the summit of the skull on the base.

After some minutes, abandon(give up) the exercise by lengthening(by stretching out) in shavasana, for a moment of relaxation.

The concentration on the mukti-yantra, maybe considered as a personal practice which allows the yogi to develop as time goes by, a considerable mental power. All his(her,its) faculties(powers) condense on a stable object, provoking a state of immobility on the subtle plan, the promoter(developer) of freedom.

This concentration which can seem long in its classic version for a beginner, it is recommended to reduce the time(weather) of practice of the second, third and fourth stage in five minutes each.

Yantra is geometrical drawings capable of reproducing the knots of energy or plexus which form within the consciousness. These geometrical forms are fundamental archetypes which are on the base of

Any shown and particular forms. They establish(constitute) a real energy net, made by knots and by holes, which weave and mesh the consciousness.


These minimal forms, represent particular divisions of the energy (or Kâlà), each of them, expressing one of the aspects of the energy associated with its power of realization.

When the individual concentrates on Yantra, mental sound has to take completely the shape, the individual obtains by the same the vibration from it, the energy as well as his corresponding efficiency.


Yantra is thus doors or passages of shown Shakti towards not shown Shiva, their games(sets) are uncountable and train(form) to them only, a full science.

In Yoga, we use them as support of dhârana (concentration)
