Ekādaśāhan (एकादशाहन्) 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. [...]”.
