Raja Yoga Sutra

Raja Yoga Selection Number 71, for Friday, December 2, 2016


[from Discourse II: "Sadhana Pada- On Spiritual Disciplines"]
II.10. TE PRATIPRASAVA-HEYAH SUKSMAH.
'Their subtle forms (of the pain-bearing afflictions) can be avoided
by reabsorbing them into their cause'.

Commentary:
When these various afflictions are a minor distraction to the
aspirant they can be merged back into their cause by substituting the
opposite mental modifications. For example, if egotistical thoughts arise,
they can be combated by focusing on the brotherhood of all mankind. If
feelings of attraction or avoidance enter the mind, then contentment or
acceptance can be substituted.

Weekly Poem

3. I HAVE COME TO RECONCILE
I am a peace-maker,
I have come to reconcile,
I belong to the brotherhood of all.
I disseminate the message of love and peace,
The message of unity and goodness.
I sing the song of oneness,
The song of "Be Good, do Good",
The song of "Soham, Sivoham,
Satchidananda Svarupoham".

(a) Soham - I am
(b) Sivoham - I am Siva
(c) Satchidananda - Absolute Existence, Knowledge, Bliss
(d) Svarupoham - I am the Self and Soul
