Raja Yoga Sutra by Patanjali, with commentary by Sri Swami Sivananda - Random Selection

Raja Yoga Sutra Selection # 13

From Discourse I: "Samadhi Pada- On Contemplations"


'Verbal delusion is caused by the identification with words that have no basis in reality.'

Verbal delusion is the mental impression created by reactions to words that are not founded on fact. If one man calls another a fool, it is only a verbalization, a vibration in the air. But what a thundering wave it creates. One simple, unreal word wreaks havoc, throwing the physical and emotional bodies into chaos, destroying all happiness and peace. One is not a fool because he is called a fool If a person Were called a donkey, he would not grow long ears and a tail. Yet, it

Is not unusual for people t react in anger to such statements and, in The process, actually give validity to them. The mind attributes Meaning and nuances to words, giving them a false reality. Such reactions to meaningless vibrations is the cause of countless human troubles.
