Commentaries and Reflections

Commentary by TKV Desikachar:

Prajña comes only in Samādhi.”

Commentary by Paul Harvey:

Dhāraṇā is the process of ‘holding onto’ the object.
Dhyānā is the process of ‘linking with’ the object.
Samādhi is the process of ‘integration into’ the object.”
Paul Harvey on Yoga Sūtra Chapter 3 verses 1-3
