Commentaries and Reflections
Commentary by T Krishnamacharya:
“The Yoga Sūtra is divided into four chapters.
The first chapter called Samādhi Pādaḥ assumes the aspirant has progressed adequately to be in a state called Samāhita.
Such a person is not easily agitated. They have a clearer perception to comprehend concepts such as Īśvara and Vairāgya.”
Commentary by TKV Desikachar:
Commentary by Paul Harvey:
“In the Yoga Sūtra, the pre-eminent text on Dhyānam within Yoga.
Chapter One is about the Refinement of the practice of Dhyānam;
Chapter Two is about the Preparation for the practice of Dhyānam;
Chapter Three is about the Outcome of the practice of Dhyānam;
Chapter Four is about the Goal of the practice of Dhyānam.”
