The Gestures, or Mudras

"Then, leaving [this Principial yoni, the living being rises] through the central artery (sushumna) of the subtle body and successively reaches the three emblems (lingas) (corresponding to the gross, subtle and causal shape). And in the heavenly, (the higher) region he drinks the divine ambrosia which is supreme bliss, white and red in color, shining like a thousand suns, and cool as a thousand moons, which flows like a rain of nectar. And he then returns to the yoni." (Shiva Samhita 4, 3-5.)

"Whichever word, good or bad, the yogi utters, becomes a magic rune, a mantra, if the yoni gesture is done at the same time." (Shiva Samhita 4, 13.)

(8) The Thunderbolt (Vajroli): "He who practices Khechari, his tongue in the hole above the glottis, and whose seed does not flow even in the embrace of a desirable woman, who keeps his seed in his body, what fear has he of death? So long as the gesture of the Void is held, so long the seed cannot fall. If the seed happened to fall, then, when it reaches the womb it is drawn up again forcibly by the power of the yoni-mudra." (Dhyana Bindu Up. 83-86.)

Shiva speaks:

"For the sake of my devotees I shall briefly describe the Thunderbolt gesture which destroys the darkness of the world and is to be kept as the secret of secrets." (Shiva Samhita 4, 78.)

"Living according to his fancy and without practicing the rules ordained by yoga, the householder can by the practice of Vajroli attain liberation." (id. 4, 79.)

"First the wise seeker should try to draw in, through the channel of the sex organ, the female seed from the yoni and bring it into his own body and he should move his sex organ without letting his own seed fall. If by chance the seed begins to move, then, through the yoni mudra it should be stopped and drawn upward and stored on the left side, then stopping for a moment the movement of the lingam and following the instructions given by his guru, the yogi, uttering repeatedly the syllables 'Hun', should again move his lingam in the yoni. And forcibly drawing inward the Apana air he should draw in the seed of the woman, this is known as Vajroli mudra." (Shiva Samhita 4, 84.)
