The manuscripts of this Upanishad exist in two versions. The Upanishad discusses meditation in Yoga. It states that silence during meditation is a reminder of the infinite subtlety therein. The Dhyanabindu Upanishad is of ancient origins, states Mircea Eliade , who places its relative chronology to the same period when the following Hindu texts were composed — Maitri Upanishad , the didactic parts of the Mahabharata , the chief Sannyasa Upanishads and along with other early Yoga Upanishads such as Brahmabindu, Brahmavidya, Tejobindu , Yogatattva , Nadabindu, Yogashikha, Kshurika and Amritabindu.

It is listed at number 39 in the serial order of the Muktika enumerated by Rama to Hanuman in the modern era anthology of Upanishads. The text is composed in poetic verse style, and uses metaphors. It opens by declaring Vishnu as a great Yogin. As fragrance is in flower, As butter is in milk, As oil is in oil-seeds, As gold is in ore. As the thread is in pearls, So firm in Atman soul are all beings, Therefore the knower of Brahman, with mind, Firm on Brahman, stands unconfused.

The Upanishad asserts that Om is a means to meditation, to understanding Atman and the Brahman ultimate reality. The longer version of the Dhyanabindu manuscript that has survived into modern era, includes a six-staged Yoga method quite different than Patanjali's eight-staged practice described in the Yogasutras.

The text is notable for its references to and the fragments it poetically integrates from hymns of the Rigveda and other ancient Upanishads such as the Mundaka , Katha and Yogatattva Upanishads.
