Yoga Sūtra Chapter Four verse 34
पुरुषार्थशून्यानां गुणानांप्रतिप्रसवः कैवल्यं स्वरूपप्रतिष्ठा वा चितिशक्तिरिति ॥३४॥
puruṣa-artha-śūnyānāṃ guṇānāṃ pratiprasavaḥ kaivalyaṃ svarūpa-pratiṣṭhā vā citi-śaktiḥ iti ||34||
Thus the attributes of nature, empty of purpose,
going back to their origin is abstraction or,
foundation in the own character of the animating principle
is the power of awareness.
Commentaries and Reflections
Commentary by Paul Harvey:
Cit or awareness is at the heart of Yoga.
Neither full nor empty, nor mine nor yours.
Awareness is as it is and is as it isn’t.
Awareness is a quality not a quantity.
