Yoga Sutras Part 1 ~ on Samadhi ~ Keys to Liberation

Patanjali~1

~ Illuminating  Raja Yoga~
On Samadhi ~ Awakening Cosmic Consciousness

1. In this blessed moment, now awake
2. Yoga illumination stills the thought ruffled waves of mind
3. Calm then like a mirror lake, mind reflects a shining moon
4. Which is unlike “the wanderer”; our sense of self
5. Always tumultuous; stirred by joy & sorrow; with either
6. Right knowledge, or delusion, doubt, deep sleep, or dreams
7. Right knowledge may yet be conditional, unconditional or transcendent.
8. While false notions; delusions, lead us astray
9. Words & fancy without substance lead further from truth
10. Finally deep sleep brings relief from tumultuous machinations
11. Then memory stirs to fill the void. This is the character of our person
12. Such habits can be released by seeing differently
13. So practice well a new habit, seeing differently
14. Continue attentively; become established firmly in the ground of being
15. “Things” no different than thought, appreciate unconditionally
16. “The One” transcends all differences; there is no separateness
17. Contemplation leads to knowing; the bliss & oneness of samprajnata
18. Asamprajnata may follow, free of all associating mentation.
19. Vidyas & Prakritilayas, less encumbered, may reach samadhi more quickly
20. Yet others by faith, trust, intensity, recall, focus, clarity & vision attain quickly
21. Most direct is the way of one very focused & sincere
22. So attention colors one’s vision, murky, less obscured, or very clear
23. The devotion of a true lover leads the way to our awakening
24. Then God is One, untouched by afflictions of time space separateness
25. Beingness, whose seed is clear, omniscience
26. Beginning-less knower, root of all knowing & known
27. Whose voice is OM the soundless sound does roar
28. Nowhere can it be excluded
29. Timeless, spaceless, gnosis, being
30. Yet veiled to all dualities which limit awareness of “That” ~like disease, stupor, doubt, sloppy careless thought & action
31. Which engender suffering in body, feeling depression and mental doubts
32. Whereas calm clear focus offers remedy for our afflictions
33. Seeing all as of the One, nurtures our sense of being & knowing
34. simply harmonizing the breath we may calmly enjoy it’s oneness flowing
35. Then mind too we find flowing like a river into the ocean of oneness
36. An ocean of light illuminating all space everywhere beyond time & place
37. Thus knowing oneness of eternal mind & unlimited space illumined
38. Become conscious always as awakened seers!
39. Seeing all that is, as it is
40. All vessels of One infinite reality
41. like mirrored bowls Reflecting rainbow light seer & seen are one
42. That there may be clarity for all; all things in name & form
43. As thought fades, so do name & form, till only the One remains
44. So too Ideas fade into one direct knowing from savichara to nirvichara
45. Object, Ideas rise to essence leading onto 1st cause Mulaprakriti
46. Subject object absorption is a place to start but not to end
47. Nirvichara goes beyond separateness into the sacred temple
48. Ritambhara; direct perception is illuminating
49. Different knowing; direct perception of truth, is beyond reason alone
50. One’s whole way of being is transformed by this samadhi
51. A still intuitive, deep and direct knowing of truth arises
