citta vritti nirodha = yoga is the cessation of mental fluctuations…
This is achieved through the 8 limbs of yoga:
(self discipline and spiritual observances–Yes, do!)
(life force extension/breath)
(withdrawal of the senses)
(concentration – “to hold”)
(meditation – “to hold steadily”)
(contemplation – “to hold without mental fluctuations”)
All meditation practices, regardless of differences in technique, seek to establish harmonization of vishesha-spanda (individual vibration) and samanya-spanda (universal vibration) through the principle of resonance.
