Ekādaśadina (एकादशदिन) (Cf. Ekādaśāhan) refers to the “time period of eleven days”, according to the Amanaska Yoga treatise dealing with meditation, absorption, yogic powers and liberation.—Accordingly, as Īśvara says to Vāmadeva: “[...] [Now], I shall define the nature of that highest, mind-free absorption which arises for those devoted to constant practice. [...] And then, within a period of eleven days (ekādaśāhan), the body of [the Yogin] who is abiding in absorption and devoid of mind, desires to move because [it] rises up swiftly. [...]”.
