The Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali - Vibhuti Pada
Mastery of the vital energy involved in gastric
fire creates a aura that glows like a blazing fire.
Samyama on the relationship between space and sound.
By restraining hearing one learns to hear divine sounds.
Relationship between the physical body and body of ether is known.
This physical body can be constrained in order for the body of ether
to become light like a cotton fiber. It can then move through space.
The veil of energy obstruction caused by the perception of separation dissolves completely. Consciousness can now move beyond the body.
Samyama on gross and light forms leads to knowledge of their purpose. In restraining
the gross bodies interactions in certain ways a mastery is gained over the elements.
From this perfection of the body manifests,
obstructions disappear. More powers surface.
A graceful attractive form, charm, beauty, great
strength and firmness is perfection in body.
The power of understanding true form. The need for restraint in the ego
and the senses yet understanding their purpose. This is the conquest.
Then a sharpness of mind comes due to it unbinding of the senses
and their not interfering with the purity if spirit in expression.
When knowledge has been successfully understood and the necessary discrimination
applied a pure illuminative state of the soul manifests. All is then known.
In destroying the seeds of bondage and being unattached to the powers
that manifest we can progress to the ultimate emancipated states of Yoga.
Summons to respectful status and higher ranks manifests as a
result of the knowledge of samyama. This may stimulate surprise
and joy. An effort must be made to still any attachment.
Samyama on sequences of events in relation to time manifests knowledge.
Then knowledge comes regarding that which seems to be of similar
origin and form but has hidden properties that differentiate it.
In this way all is known even that which is unrelated and unaffected by time.
Perfect freedom occurs when pure consciousness and the purity of soul become equal.
