The solar orb is in the place below it and it possesses twelve energies. It is called the End of the Twelve and is the location of the Void”.

Vyomasthāna (व्योमस्थान) (Cf. Gaganasthāna) refers to the “location of ākāśa”, according to the Kāmikāgama Pūrvabhāga chapter 4 (“Directions for the Daily Worship of Lord Śiva”) verse 74-76 [alternatively, chapter 6 verses 74-76].—Accordingly, “[...] The pṛthvītattva (earth) [pārthiva] is located in the heart; jalatattva [āpya], in the neck; agnitattva [vāhneya], at the root of uvula; vāyutattva [vāyu], at the mid-point of the two eyebrows; ākāśatattva [vyoman—vyomasthāna], in the brahmarandhra. Or, the location of these tattvas may be contemplated in a different way. The pṛthvītattva [pṛthivī] is from the feet to the knee; the jalatattva [āpya] is from the knee to navel; the agnitattva [anala] is from the navel to the neck; the vāyutattva [vāyura] is from the neck to the top of the face. The ākāśatattva [gagana—gaganasthāna] is located above this. Such locations are told for the purpose of dhāraṇa-practice”.
