DAY 26: Yoga Sutra 1.26

26 Sep

Sutra 1.26:  purvesham api guruh kalena anavachchhedat

  • purvesham = in front, first, earlier
  • api = also, even, too
  • guruh = teacher
  • kalena = in the course of time, by the course of time
  • anavachchhedat = uninterrupted, not intersected, undiscriminated, unbounded

Translated loosely into English;

Ishvara is also the first teacher of all teachers unbound by the course of time.

Ishvara, pure consciousness, is all-knowing.  It has always been and always will be.  It is in all places at one time, no boundaries, no limitations, unaffected by the restrains of time.  Having these qualities means Ishvara is the teacher of all ancient teachers, all Saints, Sages, Masters, Enlightened or not.
