      Yoga Sutras: Yoga Sutra 1.36:
      Meditation on inner luminosity to stabilize and clear the mind
      http://www.swamij.com/yoga-sutras-13339.htm#1.36

      YOGA SUTRA 1.36: Or concentration on a painless inner state of
      lucidness and luminosity also brings stability and tranquility.
      (vishoka va jyotishmati)

      VISHOKA = state free from pain, grief, sorrow, or suffering
      VA = or (or other practices in 1.34-1.39)
      JYOTISHMATI = the bright effulgence, lucidity, luminosity, inner
      light, supreme or divine light

      Concentration on painless inner luminosity: The easiest way to
      practice this is to place your attention in the space between the
      breasts, the heart center. Simply imagine that there is a glowing
      luminosity there, about the size of the palm of your hand. Whether or
      not you literally see with your inner eye is not important; the
      practice works either way. Maintain an inner attitude that it does
      not matter what other thoughts, images, impressions or memories might
      arise in the mind field; you will hold that stance that these will
      not disturb or distract you. Stay only with that glowing inner
      luminosity in the heart.
