Chapter VII: The Yoga of the Division of Wisdom

VII.8. RASO'HAMAPSU KAUNTEYA PRABHAASMI SHASHISOORYAYOH;

(Krishna speaking to Arjuna)
I am the sapidity in water, O Arjuna! I am the light in the moon
and the sun; I am the syllable Om in all the Vedas, sound in
ether, and virility in men.

I am the sweet fragrance in earth and the brilliance in fire, the
life in all beings; and I am austerity in ascetics.

Bear enmity to none. Do not vex others, and do not be vexed by others.

Raja Yoga Sutra

Raja Yoga Selection Number 51, for Sunday, October 22, 2017


[from Chapter I: "Samadhi Pada- On Contemplations"]
I.37. VEETA-RAAGA-VISHAYAM-VAA-CITTAM.
'Or by fixing the mind on one who has transcended human passions and
attachments'.

Commentary:
Another highly regarded object of meditation is a saint or sage
who has attained liberation. A picture of an inspiring soul, such as
Swami Sivananda, Buddha or Jesus, may be kept on the altar or other
place of meditation. He may be focused on either visually or mentally.

I.38. SVAPNA-NINDRAA-JNAANAALAMBANAM VAA
'Or (by meditating upon) knowledge gained in dreams or deep sleep'.

Commentary:
Many times the Truth is revealed by the superconscious during
sleep. Usually this information is forgotten, and is only utilized by
the subconscious. But if that knowledge is meditated upon consciously,
great progress can be made upon the path.

Weekly Poem

49. HEAVEN IN YOUR HEART

God is His Heaven.
The Heaven is in your heart.
Search for Him in your heart.
You will find Him there.
Purify your heart first.
Remove the weeds of jealousy and lust;
Withdraw the senses;
Still the mind;
Subdue the bubbling thoughts;
Silence the surging emotions.
You can meet now you Beloved.
