That is the expansion of Kriya, the happening of which brings about the stopping of the desires for the fruits of actions, after which one sees all in tranquillity in Yonimudra and thus destroying all lustful actions, one naturally discards any desire in the present even before it happens, and after doing so, because spontaneously there is no thought, one becomes immersed in dhyanayoga upon the Unthinkable Brahman, upon which one goes completely to that abode, where there is no light of sun, moon and fire, yet everything can be seen, after which, experiencing the star via Brahmayoga, the extremely secret and unspeakable yogic original revelation- all things are seen"
