“Abhyāsa or Practice is,
the effort to remain within
the stillness of the present.
Vairāgya or Dispassion is,
the absence of thirst towards
the dance of the past.”
– Paul Harvey on Yoga Sūtra Chapter One verses 12-15
“In Sūtra 1.15 Patañjali introduces Vairāgya

Towards what and how would you interpret its
relevance towards your outer and inner life?”
