From Hindupedia, the Hindu Encyclopedia

By Swami Harshananda

Niṣpatti-avasthā literally means ‘state of consummation of prāṇāyāma’.

Prāṇāyāma is a part of yogic practices. It helps in controlling the mind and restoring the humors to a balanced state to regain health, by a systematic control of breath. It has four states out of which the niṣpatti-avasthā is the last one. It is the consummation of prāṇāyāma coinciding with the jīvanmukti state. The actual methods have to be learnt from a competent teacher.
