Yoga Sutra 2.10

10 Feb

Sutra 2.10: te pratipasava heyah sukshmah

  • te = these
  • pratipasava = involution, to return to
  • heyah = eliminated
  • sukshmah = subtle

Translated loosely into English;

These subtle states of affliction (5 Kleshas) are destroyed with dissolution of the mind.

In order to dissolve mental afflictions and the fluctuations of mind, the student must first be an observer. By witnessing the states of mind, gross and subtle, the advanced student will eventually surpass mind altogether.
