Lula writes gray.

To the Meditation Nyasa is considered the origin, the source of the meditative technique of Yoga Nidra, and it was broadcasted by Swami Satyananda.

It is an ancient technique of meditation used as an integral part in the Vedic rituals, such as for example the "Sandhya - Vandana", transition or meditation prayer to the Sun. The examples Tantric also held a practice with this name, whereby the master granted an initiation to the disciple, support thumb on different parts of his body, from head to feet, as a symbol of blessing and fusion between the two Recognizing and encouraging spiritual maturity.

In the aphorism 3.25 of the Yoga Sutras, Patanjali mentions this term in the context that is refers to meditate in a way very special (Samyama), managing and projecting "inner light" that resides in the space of the subtle heart (Hrdaya). In aphorisms previous 3.23 and 3.24 refers to the development of qualities of ethical, such as friendship, and physical order as the strength of the elephant. This technique represents a symbolic, ritual, very proper and suggestive formula that meets these objectives: extend and project the interior light to enhance the integration of qualities.

Etymologically Nyasa mean place, inject, deposit, set, also directed, project. This Sanskrit word also has the meaning of offering, total abandonment to the Lord. It is built on this term Sannyasa, waiver, and Sannyasin, the have resigned.

We rely on the stages of breathing: to inspire, the Act of "taking"; to eject, "deposit"; during the retention to empty lungs, "inject", as is planting the seed in the ground.
