Vijnana Bhairava Tantra
- 26: When shakti in the form of vayu or pranic air is still and does not move swiftly in a specific direction, there develops in the middle, through the state of nirvikalpa, the form of Bhairava.
- 27: When kumbhaka takes place after pooraka or rechaka, then the shakti known as shanta is experienced and through that peace the bhairava consciousness is revealed.
- 28: Concentrate on the shakti arising from the root like the rays of the sun, gradually becoming subtler and subtler, until at last she dissolves in the dwadashanta and bhairava manifests.
- 29: Meditate on that shakti moving upwards like lightning throughall the chakras one by one to the dwadashanta. Then at last the glorious form of Bhairava dawns.
- 30: The twelve centres should be pierced successively through proper understanding of their associated twelve letters. Thus becoming liberated from the gross then the subtle, one by one, at the end of its journey the kundalini becomes shiva.
