Patanjali Yoga Sutra Transcribed from Parisamvad at The Yoga Institute. Chapter 2, Sutra 20 Patanjali Yoga Sutra 2.20 Drasta Drsimatrah Suddhah Api Pratyayanupasyah Drasta: the seer Drsimatrah: power of seeing Suddhah: pure Api: even though Pratyaya: the cause Anupasyah: appearing to see This Seer Is Consciousness Only, Even Though Pure He Re-Perceives Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra:

“They talk of the seer that is consciousness, and the seen that is external world. The external world is just for seeing, it's pure, it doesn’t have any particular picture on it, but what we see is all coloured, it’s not pure. These are where the problem comes. We get mixed up. We have the capacity to see the external world as it is. But we just can’t see. We see it in some colours, some form, some shapes. This is what the Sutra is saying.”

11th May 2014 - Sunday - Purusha and Prakruti
“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 to look for the ‘Knower,’ the Purusha and not the object of knowledge i.e. Prakruti.”

5th May 2014 - Monday - Achar
"See, Achar is the topic- 'Behaviour'. These are important words. See the actions that we do, they become responsible for our future life. But we are not so mindful. Actions are done and we see the results when they come. However in Indian thinking it is different. The entire life is based on your actions and one has to be careful. Don't just do anything anytime. You can practically mold your whole life on the basis of what you are doing now. So that care has to be taken. While doing an action, be careful."

Patanjali Yoga Sutra Transcribed from Parisamvad at The Yoga Institute. Chapter 2, Sutra 17   Patanjali Yoga Sutra 2.17 Drastrdrsyayoh Samyogah Heyahetuh Drastra: to the seer Drsyayoh: of the seen Samyogah: union Heyah: to be avoided Hetuh: the cause The Bond Of The Seer And The Seen Is The Cause Of The Pain That Is To Be Avoided Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra: "See what we are doing are technical books containing philosophy, metaphysics. But the essence if practical. We misunderstand, misconstrue, have wrong ideas and live a totally wrong life. The external world is here, we take each item as ultimate and sacrifice ourselves all our life, that's a lie. So that's what the sutra tells us. See the real form, the Swaroop. If you do that, then you'll recognize the differences. Consciousness is different and materiality is different. If we are to maintain just pure consciousness, there is no problem, but we lose that and get mixed up. And there is our problem.”

14th April 2014 - Monday - Vitarka "See, this samadhi is the highest in yoga. It is a deep concentration. One gets lost into the object and as a result realizes. Samadhi itself means realization. It's not easy because our realization is of very general nature, external, but here realization would mean depth, understanding to the deepest. So this is of course academic discussions, just academics, but we will go through it.” 15th April 2014 - Tuesday - Bhagavad Gita (6.35 - 6.36)

Patanjali Yoga Sutra Transcribed from Parisamvad at The Yoga Institute. Chapter 2, Sutra 15 Patanjali Yoga Sutra 2.15 Parinama-Tapa-Samskara-Duhkaih-Gunavritti-Virodhat-Ca-Dukham-Eva-Sarvam-Vivekinah Parinama: of change, transformation Tapa: anxiety, anguish, torment Samskara: imprints in the unconscious Duhkaih: by reason sorrows Guna: of the qualities Vrttih: activities, fluctuations, modifications, changes Virodhat: contradictory Cha: and Duhkham: because sorrow Eva: is only Sarvam: all Vivekinah: to one who discriminates (Material Objects) Being Of The Nature Of Pain, Resulting From Changes, Anxiety, And Memory-Potential And By Reason Of The Opposition Of The Modifications Of The Qualities - To The Discriminating All Is Nothing But Pain.   Commentary taken from 'The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali - Stray Thoughts of Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra & Hansaji' "The changefulness of things becomes a factor contributing to pain. A wise Yogi sees this. The fool does not. The presence of impressions becomes a source of unhappiness. One cannot forget the earlier pleasure. Old memories remain and cause sadness. The very nature of the Gunas is changing and while Sattva is pleasant, Rajas is painful and Tamas us dulling. These keep on changing and all these things make the wise man understand the nature of the external world.
