Rushen of the Mind: The essence of ati yoga practice consists in abiding definitively in a state of perennial contemplation. At the start in order for the authentic state of contemplation to arise it is indispensable to separate or distinguished of mind from the state of pure instant presence.

The separation or Rushen of the mind is an unsurpassed method to achieve this goal.
