Thank you Petra, I am also grateful that we were able to finally record and get this out in spite of not being able to film as we had previously planned!

What a sense of change of tone, I feel in chapter 2!  Going from the highest level of describing ways to cultivate samādhi  into the details of practice.  Is the first sūtra of each chapter or any text for that matter playing that role of super inclusive introduction?  It sounds like this is a practical chapter.  I have a couple of questions, one is regarding the liking of each of the elements to karma, jñāna and bhakti yoga, when all are also Kriyā and Rāja yoga.  Many definitions all meaning yoga, is that deliberate, and are there more to come?  And secondly, this Īśvarapraṇidhāna is essential, no particle vā  as in 1.23, the way I heard the explanation was similar but is it also differnt?  Thank you James !
