Yoga Sutras of Patanjali translated by Yogi Kalinath - Chapter 3, Verse 48


Pada 3, Sutra 48

Sanskrit Verse

Tato mano-javitvam vikarana-bhaavah pradhaana-jayash ca

Translation

From this comes swiftness of the mind, transcendence of the sense organs, and mastery over the primary cause and matrix of Nature.

Interpretation

By mastery of the sense organs, with it comes their transcendence allowing the mind to become more agile in its abilities to access various states of conscious awareness bringing about mastery over matter itself which in itself is a condensation of the forces of Nature.

While in this state one may ask what is matter with the concomitant response: it matters not!

Reflection

The senses operating through the sense organs are an extension of the mind as a projection of the light of awareness emitting from Consciousness itself.
