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

Raja Yoga Sutra Selection # 126

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

III.17. SABDARTHA-PRATYAYANAM ITARETARADHYASAT SAMKARAS TAT- PRRAVIBHAGA-SAMYAMAT SARVA-BHUTA-RUTA-JNANAM

'Sound, meaning and corresponding ideas are usually confused together in the mind; but when samyama is performed on the sounds, their meaning and ideas, comprehension is gained of the sound of all living beings'.

Commentary:
This is most easily understood through the use of Mantra, in which constant meditation on the Lord's name brings realization of His qualities and even the experience of His presence. Generally, however, the sutra refers to any word of any language, and even to the sounds of animals.
