Book II. Sutra 41
“When the body is cleansed, the mind purified, and the senses controlled, joyful awareness needed to realize the inner self, comes.”
From Light on Yoga Sutras of Patanjali by BKS Iyengar
The sutra does not say, the suffering needed, or the strict discipline needed, not fear and submission or even worship and salutation. Its says joyful awareness is needed to realize the inner Self. BKS Iyengar, in his commentary on this sutra says, “When the consciousness is cheerful and benevolent, the seeker becomes ready to receive the knowledge and vision of the soul.” A benevolent and cheerful mind sees and responds to others with compassion because it knows that anything less would keep it from the knowledge of who it really is. How we see others is how we see ourselves. Read More on my Blog.
