Valid yogic direct perception (Tib. རྣལ་འབྱོར་མངོན་སུམ་ཚད་མ་, Wyl. rnal 'byor mngon sum tshad ma) is defined as "an unmistaken non-conceptual cognition arising on the basis of the ruling condition of the practices of shamatha and vipashyana".

Subdivisions

Valid yogic direct perception can either have an apparent object (སྣང་བཅས་, snang bcas) as when perceiving something that is hidden or it can have no apparent object (snang med) as when seeing selflessness.
