Commentaries and Reflections
Commentary by T Krishnamacharya:
Commentary by TKV Desikachar:
“It is not possible for everyone to reach the same level of meditation,
even meditation should be taught or presented in stages.
It should be used at a level suitable to the student and gradually increased,
start simply and increase in complexity.
This is dependant on the growth of the student and according to the purpose.”
“We should never forget what Patañjali has said –
Teach according to the strength, resources and weakness of the individual”.
