Sometimes transliterated as: Karnarandhra-dhauti, KarNarandhra-dhauti, Karnarandhra-dhauti
Karṇarandhra-dhauti literally means ‘cleaning of the ear-passages’.
It consists of cleaning the two holes or passages of the ears using the index or the ring fingers. By practicing it daily some mystical sounds are heard according to the Gheranda Samhitā.
