Panchadasi - (130)
« on: August 26, 2008, 03:20:52 PM »
The Chapter XI continues....

Verse 103:- 'The Yogi whose mind is perfectly tranquil, whose
passions are subdued, who is sinless and has become Brahman,
attains the Supreme Bliss.'

Verse 104:-  'When by practice of Yoga, his mind is withdrawn
and concentrated, the Yogi sees the Self by the Self and finds
supreme satisfaction in the Self.'

Verse 105:-  'When he obtains that supreme bliss which is
beyond the senses, but which can be grasped by the intellect,
he becomes firmly rooted in it and is never moved from it.'

Verse 106:- 'Attaining it, he considers no other gain as superior.
Once established in it he is not disturbed even by great sorrow.'

Verse 107:- 'This science of separation from the painful
association is called Yoga.  This Yoga must be practised
with faith and a steady and undespairing mind.

(Here the word, Yoga, is not Raja Yoga, or breath control,
but yoga of meditation, the Dhayana Yoga.  Yoga literally
means 'union' and here it does not signify any relationship.
It is dis-association.)

Verse 108:- ' A Yogi who is free from imperfection and is
ever united with his Self, experiences easily the Supreme
Bliss of identity with Brahman.'
