Patanjali Yoga Sutra Transcribed from Parisamvad at The Yoga Institute. Chapter 2, Sutra 26 Patanjali Yoga Sutra 2.26 Vivekakhyatih Aviplava Hanopayah Vivekakhyatih: discriminative knowledge Aviplava: uninterrupted Hana: of removal Upayah: the means, method The Means Of Attaining Liberation Is Undisturbed Discriminative Knowledge Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Smt. Hansaji J Yogendra:

"In this sutra, they make it very clear that a person has to come to a level where only pure knowledge flows from his system. Nothing else. Nothing can make that knowledge vitiated or tinted. Knowledge has to be pure and clear. And the knowledge they are talking about is the clarity in what is Purusha and Prakriti.

Purusha is pure consciousness, permanent, which can't be destroyed. It's there, it's going to be there. Sattvik state is very close to Purusha. And Prakriti is ever changing with all colours, flavours, varieties, all creations. Both of these things are totally separate.

Chapter 2, Sutra 25 Patanjali Yoga Sutra 2.25 Tad Abhavat Samyogabhavah Hanam Taddrseh Kaivalyam Tad: its Abvhavat: lack or absence Samyoga: union Abhavah: absence, dissolution Hanam: removal, cessation Tat: that Drseh: of the knower Kaivalyam: liberation, enlightenment If It (Ignorance) Has Disappeared, There Is Absence Of Conjunction - The Thing To Be Avoided, This Is Liberation For The Seer Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra:

“We are using this word ‘Prakriti’, which means – ‘the creator’- matter. The matter out of which this whole universe is made. And spirit- consciousness, which has nothing to do with all this; just awareness. These are important terms which if you are learning ‘Samkhya’, you have to understand- matter and spirit. Matter is the external world. Spirit is the awareness. When the two are mixed, that is where the problem is. We are unable to understand matter as separate from spirit. So the entire exercise in Yoga is to separate the two, till a stage is reached where spirit is by itself. So this is the way the whole thing goes- learning to separate the spirit from matter.”

Chapter 2, Sutra 23 Patanjai Yoga Sutra 2.23 Sva Svamisaktyoh Svarupopalabdhi Hetuh Samyogah Sva: of being owned Svami: of being owner, master Saktyoh: of the powers Svarupa: of the nature, own nature, own form Upalabdhi: recognition Hetuh: that brings about, the cause, reason Samyogah: union, conjunction The Reason For The Coming Together Of The Seen And The Seer Is For The Seer To Unfold The Awareness Of His True Nature And Power Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Smt. Hansaji J. Yogendra:

"There are two things - Sva Shakti is Prakriti and Swami Shakti is Purusha. Basically Purusha has lost his identity. He is entangled with Prakriti and so now he doesn't know what he is. Now, to understand 'Who Am I?' I should go through some process. So Prakriti is showing the world and Purusha is watching (Drashta) and while watching, some wisdom comes. His attention suddenly goes to himself and then he realizes that he is different from Prakriti. And slowly that realization dawns, that knowledge comes. Right now all these things are there because of ignorance, then once knowledge comes, the Purusha is freed from Prakriti.

"Today's sutra makes one point very clear that every individual has to work on himself, he has to uplift himself, realize himself and release from the bondage of work and death. It means he has to develop pure, clear wisdom. This itself shows that it's self evolution and self-realization and reaching to the highest knowledge, i.e. releasing from bondage of birth and death and pain and diseases.

"Today's topic is a little philosophical topic. It is a theory which tells us that we are structured of two things, one is Purusha (There are many words used for Purusha - consciousness, soul, God). To understand consciousness we have to become aware. The other part we are made of is Prakruti (matter). Matter is something which is changeful, gross and which has its own character. Three characters are continuously seen in matter and these are Sattvic, Rajasic and Tamasic characters. These are the three Gunas of Prakruti. Consciousness is awareness. Matter is useful only if consciousness is present. For example, in our body we have a soul and so the body (matter) is working and life goes on from childhood to old age and it undergoes changes.

Listen to the Audio: Check this out on Chirbit “This entire universe is functioning for this ‘Knower.’ Unfortunately, the object of this knowledge – the tables and chairs and houses and people, they occupy the central position and we are all after that. Even if the house is still good, what it’ll be in the end is not known. But we are not really working with the change. We are just caught up in different problems. And there is so much suffering. The simplest solution is look for the ‘Knower,’ the Purusha and not the object of knowledge i.e. Prakruti.”

The topic for the English Satsang on Sunday, 11th May, 2014 was 'Purusha and Prakruti.' Following is the transcript of the Q & A between the audience and Smt. Hansaji J. Yogendra.
Smt. Hansaji and Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra
Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Q. Please explain the terms Ishwar and Purusha. Smt. H: In yoga technology, Ishwar is known as Purusha Vishesha, that is a special Purusha, which means Purusha which is untouched by Kleshas, Purusha which is not doing any Karmas. So Ishwar doesn't want anything; Santosh (contentment) is one of God's qualities, Chaitanyamaya i.e. alive and alert, is Ishwar. He is omnipresent, omniscient and can do anything and He is all-knowing. You don't have to tell Him that I have this or that problem and to do something. God knows everything. So these are the basic qualities of God, but in yoga, God means special Purusha which is unaffected by Karmas. Q. How to avoid the outburst of emotions?
