Nirbījayoga (निर्बीजयोग) refers to “union that produces no seed” and is explained in terms of kuṇḍalinī by Lakṣmaṇadeśika in his 11th-century Śaradātilaka verse 25.63.—“Those who are good speak of the union with the piṇḍa and the others, through blissful union [with Śiva], as the [type of] union that produces a seed (sabījayoga). The dissolution into Śiva, who is endowed with the quality of  being eternal, [they call] the [type of] union that produces no seed (nirbījayoga), [that is, the type] which is indifferent to rewards”.
