When executing this dhyãna one puts the power of one’s soul 2 the karmic wheel. Executing this dhyãna or meditation is touching the karmic wheel, liberating our soul exactly through dhyãna (added by yama & niyama within an asãna) or prãnãyãma together with perseverance in dhãranã !
It’s liberation of one’s soul from karma & the shortening of one’s samsara by detachment (yajña) ! Executing this dhyãna is performing the ancient Asian Indian yoga of Patãnjali renamed as Ashtanga yoga.
