The three measures are the Point, Power and Sound. The universe generated within the Three Paths has been ‘placed’ (there), that is, fashioned by this (triad). The three paths are (the three channels of the vital breath,) Iḍā, Piṅgalā and Suṣumṇā. They are the Moon (of apāna on the left), the Sun (of prāṇa on the right) and Fire (of udāna in the middle). How could the Yoni be produced without them? The Yoni consists of the three qualities (of Prakṛti), the Three Paths, Three Measures and the Three (levels of) Speech. (In short), she rests on three (modalities) [i.e., tri-lambinī] and (her) form is Vāgbhava (i.e. AIṂ). Thus she is accomplished as (the syllable) AIṂ. This is the description of the praṇava according to the Kulāgama; it is (the praṇava) of the rites of Kula (kulakriyā). Or else, praṇava (can also) consist of the letters A, U and Ma”.
