Commentaries and Reflections

Commentary by S Ramaswami:

“The object is not merely an extension or projection of the single mind without a material base.

That earlier objects if untrue or non-existent, how can it exist (when not cognised).

If one goes by the Buddhist argument the object would become non-existent in the next moment.

This Sūtra shows Yoga subscribes to Satkārya Vāda or the reality of the universe, unlike the Buddhists, who call it Suṇya.”
