Paul offers this translation he made of Lilian Silburn’s Le Vijnana Bhairava, p. 35:

“One cannot examine the procedures which serve to open the Center without having previously defined the Center itself. Strictly translated, madhya is the middle or interval, but in the Vijnanabhairava where it forms the master hinge this term is full of meaning; not to understand it would be to give up all attempts to understand this Tantra. Yet how can the simple and profound attitude that it implies be ascertained? Seen from the point of view of yoga, madhya may be conceived as the point of intersection between two rhythms, two states, or two things; fulfillment as well as junction, it becomes a fissure of interstitial void if one considers it as the interval which separates them. The yogin constantly attempts to center his attention on the junction fo his choice: a junction which can be linked to two breaths, two sounds, two movements in order to discover the exact balance piont, the real and snly place of repose. From that moment on, he starts to live anchored to the central point (the Heart), remaining always imperturbable at the junction point, his most significant acts and thoughts impregnated with the profound meaning that he there discovers. - Lilian Silburn
