Focus Of The Month – April, 2017 nimittam aprayojakaṁ prakṛtīnāṁ varaṇa-bhedas tu tataḥ kṣetrikavat Causes do not put nature, Prakrti, into motion. They only remove the obstacles and coverings, like a farmer breaking down the barriers to let water flow in the field. The hindrances removed by the causes, Nature impenetrates by herself. Yoga Sutras
shravanadibhiruddhiptajÃ±ana gniparitapitah jivassarvamalammuktah svarnavad dyotate svayam By hearing, thinking, and meditating, the light of the Self is kindled. Once this light of Self is kindled, the individual â€œIâ€ becomes free from all impurities and begins to shine forth as the universal â€œI,â€ in the same way as gold shines when it is purified by fire.
