Five Situations That Arise In the Wake of Obstacles on the Path of Yoga

Five situations that arise in the wake of the obstacles on the path of Yoga are mentioned by Sage Patanjali in the Yogasutra. They are:
  • Pain
  • Mental dejection due to frustration and of desire
  • Trembling of the body
  • Forcible inspirations
  • Forcible expirations.
To overcome all these five situations, Sage Patanjali has recommended the practice of pinpointedness.
