The Yogin’s Seat


6.7 The valiant-sage, absorbed in the Supreme-Self (Atman), is impervious to the elements of hot and cold; whether experiencing pleasure or pain, in honor or dishonor. 

When one’s mind is immovable in the Self-Supreme, there is no other recourse other than to remain fixed in the dictates of the Absolute. It’s all a matter of perceiving oneself as a liberated spirit, blissful and free from all mind and body obscurations.

6.8 One is known as an advanced yogin [mystic] when absorbed in Noble Self-realization and indissolubly united in the Unborn Spirit. Self-controlled and quiescent in Divine Equanimity, all the elements are perceived in equal-measure.

The worldling perceives the surrounding ecosphere as different-elements bonded together, whereas the anointed ones perceive all vibratory formations emanating from one Celestial Light.

6.9 The transcendent-sage is equally disposed to family, adversaries, and friendly companions. Due to their impartiality, they are empowered to ascend to great heights of Buddha-gnosis.

6.10-6.15 The ascetic-yogin should seek out a solitary location in order to practice continuous one-pointedness of mind. By keeping oneself steady in this fashion, all vexatious occurrences of the mind and spirit cessate within this self-actualized bodhimaṇḍa. The yogin’s sole-focus is on the Unborn Lord, thus devoting all of one’s energies with this salvific-union. In such vein, one is freed from all attachments to the material-temporal order.

Alone in meditation and contemplating the expansive inner-vision of divine spiritual reality, the yogin abandons all temporal-concerns and unsavory mental habits by one-pointedly directing one’s gaze in Deep Samadhis. This exuberant [spiritual-action] initiates Right-Release of celestial-vibrations that instills in the yogin an ecstatic-embrace with the Unborn Lord. It is sufficient for the yogin to link strongly with one’s inner yidam. When activated as such, the Unborn Spirit begins to speak in a powerful fashion within the Yogic-Host, in a real sense actually regulating the daily rhythm of the yogin’s own breath.

6.16-6.17 Arjuna, regulation of the body is crucial in this regard: proper diet, daily exercise, and not being addicted to unhealthy sleep-patterns is proper recourse in order to keep the receptacle of the spirit vibrant and healthy.
