General definition (in Hinduism)
Dhātuprasāda (धातुप्रसाद) literally means “by the grace of dhātu”. While describing the nature of the ātman (the Self), Yama declares that he is smaller than the smallest and greater than the greatest. He is established in the cave of the heart of all the living beings. One who realizes him and his greatness, becomes free from all the sorrows and sufferings. This is preceded by two conditions:
To be akratu,
To receive dhātuprasāda.
To become an akratu or free from volition, the aspirant should avoid all the desires and desire-motivated actions. One should not be agitated by desires, mind and senses, which are called dhātu. These dhātus support the living beings and become favorable to him. This is dhātuprasāda.Source: Hindupedia: Hinduism
