Bījāvadhānam बीजावधानम् (sūtra III.15)

Bīja – the seed; avadhānam – attentiveness.

Bīja, the seed of the universe, the independent energy of Śiva also known as svātantryaśakti is realised in the deep meditative stage known as samādi. Only in deeper stages of samādi the communication between the seeker and the Sought happens. Deeper stage of samādi is attained only if there is no discontinuity of consciousness with the Supreme. Such an aspirant cannot remain passive even for a moment, as he is about to perform the functions of the Lord. This sūtra emphasizes the importance of continued connectivity with the Lord.
