Hymns of Thayumanavar
The ascending breath * driven down to muladhara *,
The dumb * mantra showered up the clouds of fire * -
That practice I could not attain.
But when the Silent Guru that upadesa gave *
Conferred it on me,
I tasted its sweetness.
And beyond will I taste
The ambrosia in the cranial regions *.
 The basic of the six centers between the anus and the genitals, the solar plexus.
 Ajapa or the unarticulated form of mantra, OM.
 Kundalini energy lying dormant in the muladhara is roused to ascend upward to the cranial regions.
 See footnote 1, verse 27:26 ante.
 The summum bonum of yogic practice.
