Vyomavyāpin (व्योमव्यापिन्) refers to the “power of the vidyā” [?], according to the Mataṅgapārameśvara (with Rāmakaṇṭha’s commentary).—Accordingly, “[...] [Rāmakaṇṭha]:—Now if you ask what this vidyāvrata is which he must have observed, this is what the text teaches: The power of the vidyā that is mentioned here [in this compound vidyāvrata] is first to be recited for a year in a temple to Śiva, while exercising control of the senses, maintaining purity (śuciṣmatśuciṣmatā), eating daily [only the sacrificial gruel known as] caru, sleeping on the ground in the room reserved for pūjā and fire[-sacrifice] on a spread of kuśa-grass, with his mind engaged [in meditation] [i.e., yuktacetasayuktacetasā bhāvitātmanā], focussed. [Rāmakaṇṭha]:—It [viz. the power of the vidyā] is the vyomavyāpin”.
