We visualized the Buddha becoming luminous and glowing, and then contracting until he is the size of a pea . We then visualise that this small, glowing sphere of luminous light descends into our body through the crown of our head to the point where our heart is. Then we imagine the Buddha’s wisdom commingling with our minds, so that they become one and the same, indivisible in nature. We then simply abide in this state. Until we have achieved awakening, though, we are not in a position to truly understand what it means to “abide”. But for the time being, what it means is just to rest in this state, not thinking about anything else, and simply to abide with one’s current state just as it is.
