Vanhi vishasya madhye chitta sukhmayam kshipet.
Kevalam vayu purna va Samarananda yujyate
॥ ६ ८ ॥
One should throw the blissful mind into the fire (manipura chakra) in the middle of that fibre-like lotus stalk (sushumna) or into that which is only full of air (anahata chakra). Then one is united with the remembrance of bliss.
Now this verse has been translated in many ways
Laxman Joo translated it as will and knowledge
Vijay Singh called it contraction and expansion
Now if you look up a Sanskrit dictionary, Vanhi can mean fire
And visha means poison
So what is between poison and fire? Chitta happiness is hidden
How do you get there?
By doing kevali !
Smarananda yujyate – it could mean happiness of sex
That is how laxman Joo and vijay singh translated it
However , to me it refers to being United with higher self
Take your pick!
Laxman Joo or Vijay Singh
Or little unknown me!
