According to the Patanjali Yog Sutra, Samadhi is the ultimate state where we rise above the dualities of the world and merge into oneness. It is not about sitting silently and motionless, but there are subtle dimensions of Samadhi which have been uncovered by Sri Guru in these Satsangs. “As we enter into this state of Oneness, our wish becomes the command to the universe”, says Sri Guru. Often people on the path of Yog have inquired about the purpose and benefits of Samadhi.

In Episode 19, Sri Guru clearly highlights the benefits and varied changes observed within the seeker when he enters into the state of Samadhi.

The teachings of Yoga that had been handed down in an oral tradition over thousands of years from ancient times, are said to have been synthesized and compiled by Maharishi Patanjali in the form of ‘Yog Sutra’— one of the foundational texts of classical Yogic Philosophy. The Patanjali Yog Sutras explain about the अष्टांग योग (Ashtanga Yog) illustrating the 8 Elements for a Holistic Life, i.e. यम (Yama), नियम (Niyam), आसन (Aasana), प्राणायाम (Pranayama), प्रत्याहार (Pratyahara), धारणा (Dharaana), ध्यान (Dhyana), समाधि (Samadhi). The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali consist of 196 Sanskrit Sutras organized in 4 Adhyaya (chapters) — समाधिपाद (Samadhipadah), साधनापाद (Saadhanpadah), विभूतिपाद (Vibhutipadah) and कैवल्यपाद (Kaivalyapadah). He defines Yoga as that which restrains the mind-stuff (Chitta) from taking various forms (Vrutti).

At SRM, Sri Guru has always emphasized the subtler spiritual objective of Yoga; hence, the term ‘YogaYog’ was coined— experiencing Union (Yog) through Yoga. Through this Satsang series on the Yog Sutras of Maharishi Patanjali, Sri Guru takes the seekers deeper into the understanding of ‘Union’ through physical, mental, and intellectual evolution.
