Yoga Sutra of Patanjali: Pada One – Samadhi

Both practical and profound, Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, yoga's quintessential guide for the spiritual life shows us how to find peace and live with purpose.



Segment One: Now the Study of Yoga Begins

YS 1.1 "Now, instruction in yoga, in accord with an established tradition, begins."*

YS 1.2 "Samadhi is experienced when fluctuations and changes in the meditator's awareness are restrained and pacified."*

YS 1.3 "The seer then consciously abides in its own nature."*


Segment Two: Master Your Mind

YS 1.4 "At other times, one is inclined to identify with the changes and transformations that occur in the mind and awareness."*


*from Roy Eugene Davis’ translations of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras from his book The Science of Self-Realization: A Guide to Spiritual Practice in the Kriya Yoga Tradition
