Raja Yoga Sutra by Patanjali, with commentary by Sri Swami Sivananda - Random SelectionRaja Yoga Sutra Selection # 159
From Discourse IV: "Kaivalya Pada- On Realization"
IV.15. VASTU-SAMYE CITTA-BHEDAT TAYOR VIBHAKTAK PANTHAH
'The object being the same, the apparent difference (between two perceptions) is due to different minds' separate paths.'
The object remains the same, but when it is perceived by more than one mind, there immediately arise varying views of that object. This is due to the different paths of each individual. The word "path" alludes to the fact that all are traveling toward realization of the Self, and it is the individual attitudes or karmic situations that determine how a person sees something.
