Patanjali, 112:leading up to full illumination. 29. The eight means of yoga are, the Commandments or Yama, thePatanjali, 112:been their object. 55. As a result of these means there follows the complete subjugation of thePatanjali, 112:be noted by the earnest disciple, The eight "means of yoga" or the eight kinds of activity whichPatanjali, 134:use of the mind is the one which the first five means of yoga bring about - the power to transmitPatanjali, 134:itself is contacted and known. The final three means of yoga bring this about. It should bePatanjali, 135:This is not a literal translation by any means but gives the basic idea so clearly that it is bestPatanjali, 140:in the setting up of the liberty-producing means. Ignorance (avidya) must be supplanted by the truePatanjali, 153:endeavors. [153] It must be remembered that the means of perception are the six senses; i.e.Patanjali, 153:be transcended and known for what they are. The means of perception reveal the great maya or worldPatanjali, 157:their use a thing of the past. These sixteen means of perception and activity in the phenomenalPatanjali, 163:the realm of causes, the spiritual realm. By its means, the world of causes can be interpreted inPatanjali, 166:be ready to say: If this is all so, what are the means whereby this union with the real and thisPatanjali, 166:about? This second book presents the eight great means of yoga, giving thus a clear and concisePatanjali, 170:Discipline, Purification, The practice of the means of yoga or union, Initiation, Realization,Patanjali, 178:- Book 2 - The Steps to Union 28. When the means to Yoga have been steadily practised and whenPatanjali, 178:described as twofold: The practice of the right means whereby union is brought about, ThePatanjali, 178:becomes possible. The practice of the means, leads the aspirant to a scientific understanding ofPatanjali, 179:causes of revelation, the practice of the eight means to yoga and the purification of the life inPatanjali, 180:- Book 2 - The Steps to Union 29. The eight means of yoga are: the Commandments or Yama, the RulesPatanjali, 180:or Samadhi. It will be noted that these means or practices are apparently simple, but it must bePatanjali, 181:the entire threefold lower man practices the means as they refer to the physical, the astral, andPatanjali, 181:Therefore, in the study of these various means to yoga or union, we must consider them as theyPatanjali, 181:if (before we take up the consideration of the means, one by one) we tabulated them carefully,Patanjali, 181:carefully, giving their synonyms where possible: Means I The Commandments. Yama. Self-control orPatanjali, 181:(or chela) to others and to the outside world. Means II The Rules. Nijama. Right observances. ThesePatanjali, 182:around him, and his own internal reactions. Means III Posture. Asana. Right Poise. CorrectPatanjali, 182:Poise. Correct attitude. Position. This third means concerns the physical attitude of the disciplePatanjali, 182:abstract concepts. Finally, the practice of this means coordinates and perfects the lower threefoldPatanjali, 182:or manifestation of the life of the spirit. Means IV. Right control of the life-force. Pranayama.Patanjali, 183:to the physical man in objective manifestation. Means V. Abstraction. Pratyahara. Right withdrawal.Patanjali, 183:gradually from all sense contacts. The next two means relate to the mental body and the final onePatanjali, 183:and the final one to the real man or thinker. Means VI. Attention. Dharana. Concentration. FixationPatanjali, 183:is coordinated, understood, focused and used. Means VII. Meditation. Dhyana. The capacity of thePatanjali, 183:abstract ideas, and idealistic concepts. This means concerns higher and lower mind. [184] MeansPatanjali, 184:This means concerns higher and lower mind. [184] Means VIII. Contemplation. Samadhi. This relatesPatanjali, 184:cover the triple nature; in studying all these means we shall note their relation to one or otherPatanjali, 187:term dharma in respect to others. Dharma means literally the proper working out of one'sPatanjali, 192:This will be found to generate energy. This means consequently that the etheric body becomesPatanjali, 208:or partially ajar, swing wide. The five great means of contact rush into activity. Obstacles arePatanjali, 213:III. and are produced by conformity to the eight means of yoga dealt with in Book II. Only devotionPatanjali, 217:and breath are synonymous terms. This is by no means the case. Vivekananda points this out in hisPatanjali, 219:to the exclusion of the previous three means to yoga (the Commandments, Rules and Posture) have aPatanjali, 219:most necessary that students should follow the means of yoga in the order in which they are givenPatanjali, 221:and receptive must precede the last four means of yoga which do not so immediately concern thePatanjali, 223:he is ready (having attended to the previous means of yoga) and which give him the ability to tapPatanjali, 224:control and must be present before the fifth means of yoga, withdrawal or abstraction becomesPatanjali, 224:dealt with and that no aspirant can achieve this means of yoga without working simultaneously atPatanjali, 224:yoga without working simultaneously at the other means also. The study of the parallelism in naturePatanjali, 225:is an exact science for which these four means of yoga have prepared the way. The fires of the bodyPatanjali, 227:proper response through attention to the four means of yoga already considered, two results beginPatanjali, 227:in him and he is ready to use the remaining four means which will reorient him and bring himPatanjali, 229:impression has been made possible, the remaining means of yoga, abstraction, attention, meditationPatanjali, 229:meditation and contemplation, (the last three means of yoga) can be properly undertaken, not onlyPatanjali, 232:2 - The Steps to Union 55. As a result of these means there follows the complete subjugation of thePatanjali, 232:of correcting them is indicated and then the means of yoga are taken up, five out of the eightPatanjali, 232:eight being considered and explained. These five means, when duly followed, bring a man to thePatanjali, 232:taken up in the next book. The remaining three means of yoga are explained and then the results ofPatanjali, 234:is developed stage by stage. 7. These last three means of yoga have a more intimate subjectivePatanjali, 234:intimate subjective effect than the previous means. 8. Even these three, however, are external toPatanjali, 234:samana, the spark becomes the flame. 41. By the means of one-pointed meditation upon thePatanjali, 245:is told, after he has made use of the first five means of yoga (dealt with in Book II), that hePatanjali, 248:idea in the following words: "The soul has the means. Thinking is the means. It is inanimate. WhenPatanjali, 248:words: "The soul has the means. Thinking is the means. It is inanimate. When thinking has completedPatanjali, 249:any interference on their part. This literally means that the independent life of these formsPatanjali, 256:achieved and its Results 7. These last three means of yoga have a more intimate subjective effectPatanjali, 256:intimate subjective effect than the previous means. The first five means of yoga have for theirPatanjali, 256:effect than the previous means. The first five means of yoga have for their primary objective thePatanjali, 256:to work with the interior, internal and intimate means. The entire eight means of yoga themselvesPatanjali, 256:internal and intimate means. The entire eight means of yoga themselves only prepare a man for thatPatanjali, 257:[257] Johnston in his commentary says: "...The means of growth previously described were concernedPatanjali, 258:realm, it should be borne in mind that the eight means of yoga do produce definite effects in thePatanjali, 279:be remembered that the result of the eight means of yoga is to produce a yogi or trained knower. HePatanjali, 291:meditation are only permitted after the eight means of yoga (dealt with in Book II) have beenPatanjali, 296:our subtle bodies. These subtle bodies are the means whereby we function upon the inner planes,Patanjali, 301:primary cause, like a firefly in the sky." This means that our solar system is but a cosmic atomPatanjali, 301:of the sun full knowledge can be achieved. This means very briefly that through a knowledge of thePatanjali, 311:the result of the correct following of the eight means of yoga, and therefore automatic andPatanjali, 314:his own lamp and thus provided himself with the means of penetrating into Their world. The morePatanjali, 314:is to be brought about by the use of appropriate means, the seeing of divine beings can bePatanjali, 316:It gives to him an understanding of ways, means and methods, and enables him to take the first stepPatanjali, 333:3 - Union achieved and its Results 41. By the means of one-pointed meditation upon the relationshipPatanjali, 339:into his life in correct realization the various means of yoga dealt with in the previous books,Patanjali, 345:(Book I, Sutra 40.) "As a result of these means there follows the complete subjugation of the sensePatanjali, 355:has these words: "Mastery over the Pradhana means the power of control over all [356] thePatanjali, 368:that now it serves as an adequate expression and means of service. The soul can now function freelyPatanjali, 368:reached and through a following of the eight means of yoga the soul can manifest through the [369]Patanjali, 379:In the sutra we are considering, five means are given whereby the psychic powers are developed andPatanjali, 383:The practices refer primarily to: 1. The means for removing obstacles. (See Book I. Sutras 29 toPatanjali, 384:rapid effects. The methods refer to the eight means of yoga or union, enumerated as follows: thePatanjali, 389:reached by those who have followed the eight means of yoga and have experienced the effects ofPatanjali, 391:"The black-white is brought about by external means, as in this, the vehicle of actions grows byPatanjali, 391:as in this, the vehicle of actions grows by means of causing pain to, or acting kindly towardsPatanjali, 392:[392] "The white is of those who resort to the means of improvement, of study and meditation. ThisPatanjali, 392:the mind alone. It does not depend upon external means, it is not, therefore, brought about byPatanjali, 414:possible advantage. This is what the three last means of yoga seek to do. As this has been coveredPatanjali, 415:from the mind who simply seeks to use it as a means to knowledge. The problem has arisen veryPatanjali, 418:controlled and utilized. Through the eight means of yoga his instrument has been discovered,Patanjali, 420:hours of recollection of one's true nature are means employed to detach the mind from the lowerPatanjali, 424:the rules, following the practices employing the means and steadily fulfiling the law and at thePatanjali, 427:and because of this, and through following the means of yoga, all knowledge becomes available.
