Sutras 1.12-1.16

20 min - Talk


James unpacks sutras 1.12-1.16: abhyasa vairagyabhyam tannirodhah (1.2), tatra sthitau yatno abhyasa (1.3), sa tu dirgha-kala-nairantarya-satkara-adara-asevitah-drdha-bhumih (1.4), drstanusravika visaya vitrsnasya vasikara samjna vairagyam (1.5), and tatparam purusakhyater gunavaitrsnyam tatparam (1.5). In these sutras, we begin to see the yoga practice as defined by Patanjali. Yoga practice is the effort to cultivate steadiness. Practice is the longterm, wholehearted, and a dedicated effort towards steadiness.
