Yoga sutras II, 18 THE FIVE KLESHAS ? PAIN & LIBERATION


#1

[b]II, 18 prakasa kriya sthiti silam bhuta indriya atmakam bhoga apavarga artham drsyam

The seen has the qualities of
luminosity, activity and stability.
It is embodied through the elements
and the sense organs.
It exists
for the dual purpose of
sensory enjoyment
and liberation
of the Self.[/b]

Everytime, I read this sutra and reflect on it, there are more and more insights and deeper understanding. And I can write and write and write… but sometimes less is more.

I had discussed this sutra earlier…more words may be useful too :slight_smile:
