Enlightenment by means of yoga is said by some of its adherents to include the following elements:

1. A shift into Samadhi meditation consciousness, where the thought-narrative is not perceived as the self but rather as a mental tool. In this state the self is perceived as the awareness that experiences the thoughts. This is described in depth in the #1 NY Times bestseller "The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle.

2. An emotional equilibrium or "positiveness", known in Buddhism as the Loving-Kindness concept.

3. A neurological-sensory transformation known as raising the kundalini. In a process of meditation, stress is purportedly released from the system, resulting in heightened senses, the activation of several pleasure centers in the brain, and a higher nerve operating voltage. These claims have been summarized by the late Itzhak Bentov in the article anthology "kundalini" by John White, editor.

4. The process where a person is said to open their heart and surrender themselves completely so that all negativity can be removed and be brought closer to and then return completely to God. This is described in the book about "Reiki Tummo" An Effective technique for Health and Happiness" by Irmansyah Effendi, Yayasan press 2004.
