108 Sūtra Study Pointers – 178 – To start with, Nimitta is usually an external agency…

To start with, Nimitta is usually an external agency, but this
external agency must itself also be linked to some Nimitta.
In early life for example, our parents, friends or teachers can
be a Nimitta. As to Yoga, the best external Nimitta is a teacher.
Here, the teacher’s role is to help guide you towards your internal
Nimitta, in that the teacher will get to know you and support you
with the appropriate means for your journey from outer to inner.
From this process, a mirror for Nimitta can be through any number
of things, for example Dharma or even Duḥkha can offer guidance.
– Paul Harvey on Yoga Sūtra Chapter Four verse 3
