Commentaries and Reflections

Commentary by T Krishnamacharya:

Commentary by TKV Desikachar:

“One whose Citta is refined through
Dhyāna acts without selfinterest.
This influence, born out of Dhyāna,
allows the person to act without harm.
Otherwise we do not know what will happen.”

Jñāna Vṛddha
One whose perception is cooked by time.”

Commentary by S Ramaswami:

“Among all of these five classes of Siddha, those obtained out of Yoga meditation do not produce further desires and do not lead to further Janma. The rest will lead to further bondage.
The question may be asked, if the Yogi is using Asmitā to create Citta does this mean there can be a Karma that doesn’t produce results, i.e. Kleṣa/Karma/Vipalka/Āṣaya/Kleśa/etc…
How does the Yogi practice action without reaction or tendencies developing.”

Commentary by Paul Harvey:

“The motive and state of mind of the teacher can
also vary and therefore produce varying results.
Thus the influence may or may not be for good,
depending on the person who is influencing and
the source of their powers; except in the case of Yoga,
because the actions of a Yogin are free of selfinterest.
Thus, the motivation and intention of the teacher are
important in helping the student illuminate their Nimitta.”
– Paul Harvey on Yoga Sūtra Chapter Four verses 5-6
