At the past midnight, in a place where there are no sounds of any animal, &c., to be heared, let the yogi practice puraka and kumbhaka, closing the ears by the hands (5.78). He will hear then various internal sounds in his right ear. The first sound will be like that of crickets, then that of a lute, then that of a thunder, then that of a drum, then that of a beetle, then that of bells, then those of gougs of bell-metal, trumpets, kettles-drums, mridanga, military drums, and dundubhi, etc (5.79 and 5.80). Thus various sounds are cognized by daily practice of this Kumbhaka. Last of all is heard the Anahatha sound rising from the heart; of this sound there is a resonance, in that resonance there is a light. In that Light the mind should be immersed. When the mind is absorbed, then it reaches the Highest seat of Vishnu(Parama-pada). By success in this Bhramari Kumbhaka one gets success in samadhi (5.81 and 5.82).
- In pawanmuktasana, close your eyes and close your ears with your hands.
- Hum intensely, as deeply as possible, as loudly as possible, as intensely as possible
- Do this for 7 minutes
- Note: 10-15 minutes after doing this kumbhaka one should eat something

Nidraam Sakhe Nirvisha Nirvikalpaam ||26||
Having cut-off from the base of thinking and having completely nullified the net of the action, in other words being unclutched from thoughts, unclutched from actions and unclutched from the fruits of actions by constant practice, the most sacred space of yoga nidra happens in yogi (verse 25).
Oh! Friend, having taken relaxation in the bed of Consciousness, all the time reside in the state of Nirvikapla Yoga Nidra which is above the first three states of wakefulness, dream and deep slumber and which is the embodiment of pure knowledge and awareness (verse 26).
- Just lie down on your back
- Unclutch immediately. By the unclutching and the laziness combined together, you will fall into a kind of a half sleep. Get into that sleep. That is what is yoga nidraa.
- Do this for 21 minutes
- After completing Yoga Nidra, eat immediately and then sleep.
