Yoga Sutra IV.2
jantyantara parinamah prakrtyapurat
jantyantara - in another class, change of birth, another state of life
parinamah - change, transformation
prakrti . nature, creative cause, nature´s energy
apurat: becoming full, being full, abundant flow
Interpretation: "The abundant flow of nature´s energy brings about a transformation in one´s birth, aiding the process of evolution."
"Just as water can be transformed into vapor or ice, and gold into ornaments, so afflictions and fluctuations can be bought under control and transformed by vanquishing avidya" ´-- BKS Iyengar Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
Avidya meaning ignorance. A blindness about reality, a lack of knowledge or awareness.
"What don´t we see when we are ignorant? The answer is this. You don´t know what is real and what is not real. You don´t know what is enduring and what is perishable. You don´t know who you are and who you are not. Your whole world is upside down because you take the artifacts in your living room to be more real than the unity that connects us all, more real than the relations and obligations that unite us all. Perceiving the links and associations that bind the cosmos in a seamless whole is the object of yoga´s journey of discovery." BKS Iyengar Light on Yoga
Iboga is a journey of discovery also. It is another tool that can remove ignorance- It shows the self what is real, that it is empowered, that all is choice and that truth endures within the individual and not without the individual.
Throughout time there have been countless teachers from a diversity of cultures with varying philosophies, religions, dogmas and traditional wisdoms. We get to see from our unique standpoint in time that they all reiterate these universal truths in different ways and this is truly beautiful.
Remove avidya with your tool of choice and free yourself from afflictions. Different paths that all lead to the same place. The transformation of consciousness through the removal of blockages….....by you.
