Sage Patanjali Quotes

When consciousness is silent, the seer (atma) radiates in his own grandeur.
Correct knowledge is dependent upon direct perception, inference and authoritative scriptural testimony.
Incorrect knowledge is mistaking the identity of one thing for the other or one object for another.
Practice and detachment are the means to still the consciousness.
Practice is an effort to still the mind’s fluctuations in order to silence the consciousness.
Long, uninterrupted, alert practice is the firm foundation for stabilizing the consciousness.

Ignorance is the identification of the seer with the instruments of seeing. Instead of witnessing the ego, we identify with it. Instead of witnessing suffering, we identify with it. And yet inevitably we are controlled by that with which we identify; we are tortured by all that we have not transcended.
