The Patanjali Sutras - Vibhuti Pada
The many scattered thoughts slowly disappear, a one pointed mind emerges.
Consciousness is transforming into spiritual oneness with the source of life.
Again there is a rise and fall in and out of this state. It is similar to before. Action must
be taken for consciousness to remain one pointed and for transformation to continue.
Then a visible transformation occurs in body and
senses, character, behavior and actions.
Calmness is present in being but true potential has not yet manifested.
The virtuous road must be closely followed and proper action followed.
Proceeding will cause transformations that are quite apparent.
Knowledge of the past and future comes from the transformation caused
by the merging of concentration, meditation and Samadhi.
Sound, meaning and feelings merge. Then the universal language of all beings is known.
Hidden and past impressions surface into consciousness. Everything about
them becomes known. They may come from experiences in life or beyond birth.
Consciousness of others is known.
This knowledge is not to be used unless aiding others in
which they cannot perceive but seek in life.
