~Antar Mauna~

Antar mauna is a Sanskrit term that means “inner silence.” It refers to a yogic meditation technique that involves transforming and controlling thought processes through self-awareness and mindfulness. By internalizing the senses through this form of meditation, the yogi observes the inner and underlying structure of the mind and thought processes.

Swami Satyananda Saraswati of the Bihar School of Yoga in India developed the Satyananda system of yoga and the six stages to antar mauna. Satyananda yoga incorporates aspects of Jnana, Bhakti and Karma yoga.
