Subject: The 'Void' is 'No Mind', the 'Energy of Understanding'.

How this world manifests from the mind and how it submerges by the meditating chitta into the most subtle form of atma has to be understood to understand the worship of the eternal. The formless and the one with form are not separated from each other, they both interact and change from one to the other. When the pure, living one gets touched by the mascara of the impure one, it takes name and form and when by the effects of purifying sadhan, the mind forgets name and form, it unites with the pure light and gradually advancing with it, absorbs into the most subtle point, thus the Lord's eternal light shines. Establishing here, the selfless being takes form of the void as chitta. This is the totally formless position.

This position can be reached by two methods. Firstly by keeping the mind united with the breath that we know. The second is the spiritual yoga-by which concentrating on the kootash and entering it is possible. Both give similar results, the the second has more depth to offer as the lighted kootash and the magnified kootash have to be pierced and then the main spot is reached, after it, the sound point and then the thoughtless point have to be passed, thus the void can be availed; so it is said “always-the kootash will have to be thought of, then meditated upon the unknown Brahm which gets lighted in the form of kootash.” When intoxicated position is reached by it, and the meditator becomes one with his aim, then the chitta with a form of atma will absorb in the great void. For it, curbing of the indriyas is needed, so that they do not get worldly attracted. The calmed sense organs will result in a purified subtle mind, which will enable its entry into the intelligent void-form of the chit. By it none will be understood as another, all will be a form of the atma only. When a sadhak of this status sees that the beings are badly involved and strongly tied down to the world, then feeling sorry for them he teaches them this sadhan by which they can be saved. Staying always in the kootasth, the sadhak has a balanced feeling for all. His mind and indriyas do not get tempted. He is, thus, a true saintly person. By kriya his age and intelligence increase. he sees a form of the self in the kootasth and abides by it. Fixing in it many unknown matters get known and unheard sounds get heard. Experiencing the unseen and realizing the unrealized, others should be taught and benefit from it.
