108 Sūtra Study Pointers – 186 – Patañjali, in the Samādhi Pādaḥ or Book One, introduces…

Patañjali, in the Samādhi Pādaḥ or Book One, introduces
two primary paths for cultivatingDhyānam Sādhana.

Firstly, that of Jñāna Dhyānam where the Prayatna is Viyoga.
Here, the Bhāvana is to unlink from the activities of the Citta.

Secondly, that of Bhakti Dhyānam where the Prayatna is Yoga.
Here, the Bhāvana is to link to and direct the activities of the Citta.

Both Sādhana can lead the practitioner towards the same goal,
the unalloyed abiding inherent within the source of perception.”
– Paul Harvey on Yoga Sūtra Chapter One
