Chapter 5: The Master of Masters
The word yoga comes from the root yuj. It means meeting, combining together. It happens when subject and object are yoked together. The English word yoke also comes from yuj, the same root from where yoga comes. When subject and object are yoked together, sewn together so that they are no longer separate, bridged, the gap disappears. You attain to a superconsciousness.
That’s what Patanjali calls:
Repeating and meditating on Om brings about the disappearance of all obstacles and an awakening of a new consciousness.
Enough for today.
