Letting go of omniscience brings the highest: When there is no longer any interest even in omniscience, there comes the samadhi that brings an abundance of virtues like a rain cloud brings rain, which is called dharma-meghah samadhi (4.29).
The end of the colorings: After that dharma-meghah samadhi, the colorings of the kleshas and the karmas are removed (4.30). The uncoloring of thoughts was described earlier in chapter 4 (4.17), as well as other places throughout the Yoga Sutras (1.5, 2.1-2.9, 2.10-2.11, 2.12-2.13). Now, finally, this core principle and practice of Yoga, that of uncoloring (aklishta) the colored (klishta) thought patterns come to its end.
When there is no longer any interest even in omniscience, that
discrimination allows the
samadhi, which brings an abundance of virtues like a rain cloud brings rain.
Letting go of omniscience: There finally comes a point where discrimination has so thoroughly set aside all which is not Self that even the interest in omniscience is seen as only relatively real and not worthy of pursuit.
Then comes the highest virtues: From that non-attachment to omniscience there comes the samadhi that brings an abundance of virtues like a rain cloud brings rain. The Self may have been glimpsed before, but the colorings of the deep impressions were still there. Now even those have been transcended.
After that dharma-meghah samadhi, the colorings of the kleshas and the
karmas are removed.
Burning the seeds of karma: This is the final dealing with the colorings (kleshas). First, the mind was stabilized (1.33-1.39). Then these colorings were reduced in their gross form (2.1-2.9), then they were dealt with in their subtle forms (2.10-2.11, 2.12-2.25). These kleshas (colorings) moved through four stages (2.4) of active, separated, attenuated, and then were reduced to seed form. Now, those seeds are parched, so as to not be able to grow again.
Resting in your True nature: First, there were glimpses of Truth, which had the effect of negating the obstacles (1.50). After a great deal of sadhana (spiritual practices), there came a temporary discriminative enlightenment that was accompanied by breaches (4.27-4.28). Now, with the neutralizing of the colorings of the samskaras that cause karma, the realization is finally firm of ground. The yogi rests in the True nature of the Self (1.3).
------- This site is devoted to
presenting the ancient Self-Realization path of
the Tradition of the Himalayan masters in simple, understandable and
beneficial ways, while not compromising quality or depth. The goal of
our sadhana or practices is the highest
Joy that comes from the Realization in direct experience of the
center of consciousness, the Self, the Atman or Purusha, which is
one and the same with the Absolute Reality.
This Self-Realization comes through Yoga meditation of the Yoga
Sutras, the contemplative insight of Advaita Vedanta, and the
intense devotion of Samaya Sri Vidya Tantra, the three of which
complement one another like fingers on a hand.
We employ the classical approaches of Raja, Jnana, Karma, and Bhakti
Yoga, as well as Hatha, Kriya, Kundalini, Laya, Mantra, Nada, Siddha,
and Tantra Yoga. Meditation, contemplation, mantra and prayer
finally converge into a unified force directed towards the final
stage, piercing the pearl of wisdom called bindu, leading to the
