 Card, this is interesting. Maharishi employed this some more in some of the 
advanced technique. I find it really works and amp-ed up the progress of the 
embodiment of spirituality in the whole subtle energy system. -Buck

 This seems to be Madhusuudana's definition(?) of dhaaraNaa
 

 hRt-puNDariikaadau (hRt-puNDariika+aadau) manasash-cira-kaala-sthaapanaM
 dhaaraNaa.
 

 My attempt at translation:
 

 mind's long-time-staying-in the lotus of heart, etc, is dhaaraNaa.
 

 mind's (manasaH) long (cira)-time(kaala) -staying-in (sthaapanam)
  the lotus (puNDariika) of heart (hRt), etc (aadau), [is] dhaaraNaa.
