1.1 And now, the teachings of yoga.

“Often this very first sutra is read quickly or even disregarded, which is unfortunate since this sutra is placed first to set the tone.” — Nischala Joy Devi, The Secret Power of Yoga

1.3 When your mind is still, you abide in your own true nature.

“In the state of Yoga, the different preconceptions and products of the imagination that can prevent or distort understanding are controlled, reduced or eliminated. The tendency to be closed to fresh comprehension or the inability to comprehend are overcome.” – T.K.V. Desikachar, Reflections on Yoga Sutra-s of Patanjali
