Commentary by Paul Harvey:

“However, psychic activities
will re-emerge, for those
who are discarnate,
or absorbed in the
process of matter.”

“In Sūtra 1.19 Patañjali appears to be alluding to
two possible cul-de-sac’s for misplaced intention,
in terms of experiencing an illusion of freedom.
What are they and how can they be avoided?”
