35 Essential Yoga Sutras of Patanjali explained in Pathway to God


Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi are the eight modes of Ashtanga Yoga. 2:29, pg 22 

Non-violence, Truth, Non-stealing, Moving towards God, and Non-hoarding, are the Yama. 2:30, pg 24 

Yama is a Universal Vow, to be adhered to, irrespective of social status, place, time, and condition of living. 2:31, pg 24

Purity, Contentment, Self Discipline, Self Improvement, and Self Surrender, are the Niyama. 2:32, pg 25

Or, devotion to God. 1:23, pg 28

By offering yourself to the Lord, you reach Transcendental Oneness and realise your supreme potential. 2:45, pg 29

God is that one Supreme Being who is free from impurities, karmic bondage, the fruits of all action, and selfish motives. God is utterly selfless and full of love for all. 1:24, pg 34

God is all-knowing i.e. omniscient. 1:25, pg 34

Know God as your timeless, most supreme teacher (Guru), who guides you and guards you from all storms. 1:26, pg 34

Immediately commit yourself to the full discipline of Yoga. 1:1, pg 46

Thoughts are of five types, and may or may not result from impurities. 1:5, pg 54

The five types of thought patterns are Right Knowledge, Wrong Knowledge, Imagination, Sleep, and Memory. 1:6, pg 54

Union with the Supreme is experienced when the total mind is stilled. 1:2, pg 58

The five impurities are Spiritual Ignorance, False Sense of Yourself, Attachment, Aversion, and Fear of the New. 2:3, pg 74

Storage of all impressions of past, present and future action, which is based on impurities, becomes manifest in the present life or in a future i.e. unseen life. 2:12, pg 80

As long as those impurities remain at the root, the consequence or result of them is birth in a particular species, span of life and experience. 2:13, pg 80

Mental stillness is achieved by unbroken spiritual practice and disinterestedness in sensory objects. 1:12, pg 88

One gets a firm grounding when sustained practice is undertaken with reverence and remains unbroken forever. 1:14, pg 88

Tapas, Svadhyaya and Ishvar Pranidhana are the three practices of Kriya Yoga. 2:1, pg 94

Self-realisation is obstructed by mental distractions: sickness, lack of energy, doubt, carelessness, laziness, cravings, incorrect perceptions, inability to attain firm commitment to Sadhana, and instability in practise. 1:30, pg 98

For the removal of the previously mentioned obstacles, practise one-pointedness on a spiritual principle. 1:32, pg 108 

God is Om, the primeval aspect. 1:27, pg 116 

When you devotedly chant the sacred mantra Om, you will realise its true significance. 1:28, pg 116 

When you chant Om, all your mental distractions will be dissolved and you will move closer to your goal of Self-realisation. 1:29, pg 120 

When you are established in the deep practice of moving towards God, you gain the strength to advance quickly. 2:38, pg 122 

Friendliness towards those who experience happiness, compassion for those who experience unhappiness, joy in another’s meritorious deeds, and benevolent indifference towards those who indulge in unmeritorious deeds, bring one to a state of equanimity. 1:33, pg 126 

Erroneous ways of thinking and feeling prevent the practise of Yoga. Hence, a seeker should develop opposite tendencies i.e. positive tendencies. 2:33, pg 132 

Through prolonged concentration on spiritual friendship and other human values, one is infused with a multiplicity of strengths. 3:23, pg 140 

From contentment, there is acquisition of unsurpassed happiness. 2:42, pg 144 

Spiritual practice is your consistent effort to arrive at Stillness. 1:13, pg 148 

When effort becomes effortless, there follows quiet and complete absorption in the Infinite. 2:47, pg 149 

The consistent practice of Yog results in elimination of impurities. The intellect becomes manifest until it is further purified and culminates in steady discriminative insight. 2:28, pg 150 There is immunity to the pairs of opposites. One remains in a state of equilibrium despite pain and pleasure, sorrow and happiness, heat and cold etc. 2:48, pg 158 

When the mind becomes still, the seer remains established in her essential divine nature. 1:3, pg 163 

For devotees who yearn most intensely, God is within sight i.e. close-by. 1:21, pg 164 

8 invaluable Srimad Bhagavad Gita Shlokas explained in Pathway To God


Let go of everything you know about the universal code of spiritual conduct. Take refuge in Me alone. I shall absolve you of all your impure actions and liberate you. Fear not. 18: 66 , pg 30 

Fix your mind on Me, be devoted to Me, worship Me and offer obeisance to Me. Thus remaining absorbed in Me, you shall come to Me. 9:34, pg 31 

I have revealed this most ancient secret of Yoga to you because you are My devotee and friend. He who knows Me as the selfless Friend of all beings, attains peace. 4:4, 5:29, pg 37 

I am memory and intelligence. From Me come remembrance, knowledge and forgetfulness. I alone am worth knowing through the Vedas. 10:34, 15:15, pg 66 

O Krsna, the mind is very unsteady, turbulent, tenacious, and powerful. To me, it seems as difficult to control as the wind. 6:34, pg 90 

The mind is undoubtedly restless, but you can bring it under control by continuous practise (Abhyasa) and disinterestedness in sensory objects (Vairagya). 6:35, pg 91 

When devotees selflessly worship Me, and remain in a permanent state of Yoga (meditative union with Me), I personally look after the fulfilment of all their aspirations, and also safeguard all they attain. 9:22, pg 102 

You must elevate yourself by your own mind. Do not allow your mind to drag you down. Your mind is the friend of your Soul, and its enemy as well. 6:5, pg 135
