A Sutra a Day: I-24 Home and Hearth

Jun 11, 2012 | Philosophy, Wisdom, XSutras, Yoga Sutras of Patanjali | 0 comments

How happy am I to be home again from our week away up north? Completely!
I’ve loved the connections with dear friends and a whole new crop of yoga students. But here, in front of the slow combustion fire, I’m like the goddess Hestia, digging in and not wanting to move from my hearth vigil.
Here’s Patanjali’s definition of the impersonal God, Isvara….
Klesha karma vipaka asayaih aparamrstah purusavisesah Isvarah
Isvara is a distinct, incorruptible form of pure awareness, utterly independent of cause and effect and lacking any store of latent impressions.*
