When practising in an elaborate way, it is the life-force seed syllable[1], the very essence of the deity, visualized in the heart centre of the jñanasattva (the wisdom being), in the heart centre of oneself visualized as the samayasattva (the commitment being). It is encircled by the mantra garland and is the innermost of the three sattvas. When practising in a simple way it is visualized within the heart centre of the samayasattva.
