The Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali - Samadhi Pada
The retention of past perceptions, experiences and knowledge is memory
Practice regularly to control desires and eventually become freed from them.
Practice is the continued effort to still the re-occuring mind fluctuations.
Practice for a long time with devotion and enthusiasm.
Freedom from desires is achieved with intellect and control.
Higher states of self are perceived and understood. Distractions disappear.
Known is considered then understood. Then comes bliss from the true knowledge.
When in Union there is stillness but past impressions may arise.
Memory in time is balanced to serve us in life but not lead us astray.
What arises is a state of awareness where the seer is merged with nature.
Previous knowledge and memory serve the cause. Faith, strength and profound meditation lead us further.
