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

Raja Yoga Sutra Selection # 120

From Discourse III: "Vibhuti Pada- On Divine Powers"

III.9. VYUTTHANA-NIRODHA-SAMSKARAYOR ABHIBHAVA-PRADURBHAVAU NIRODHA-KSANACITTANVAYO NIRODHA-PPARINAMAH

'Through the constant replacement of disturbing thought waves by ones of control, the mind is transformed and gains mastery of itself'.

Commentary:
Reaching the superconscious state is a matter of practice. If useless thoughts are eliminated the moment they appear, they are gradually weeded out.

III.10. TASYA PPRASANTA-VAHITA SAMSKARAT

'Its flow becomes undisturbed through repetition'.

Commentary:
Mastery of control of the mind comes through creating new habits. When the samskaras of restraint are reinforced often enough, the mind becomes tranquil.
