What was named in The Hidden Teaching Beyond Yoga "The Yoga of the Untouch" can be literally translated as "The Yoga which Touches no Object," meaning--in plain English--the practice of turning attention away from every thought and image and thing in profound concentration and being utterly absorbed in pure Mind. This is a feat which obviously requires prior preparatory training. There is no attempt at self-improvement, self-purification, or mind-training here; nor any aspiration, or longing. It is a calm movement into the Silent Universal Mind, without personal aims.
