1.50 The Seed of Creation

YOGA SUTRAS OF PATANJALI | CHAPTER 1 - SAMADHI PADA | VERSE 50 | COMMENTARY


Tatjah samskaro anyasamskar-pratibandhi


तज्जः संस्कारोऽन्यसंस्कारप्रतिबन्धी॥१.५०॥

Tajjaḥ saṁskāro'nyasaṁskārapratibandhi̅ ||1.50||


Impressions born of this Knowledge override the previous impressions.



YOGA SUTRAS OF PATANJALI | CHAPTER 1 - SAMADHI PADA | VERSE 50 | COMMENTARY

The knowledge that is revealed now, overpowers the impressions in the seed. The seed holding many impressions with the ability to divide and multiply, is made infertile. When r̥tam is connected to the awareness, a new impression, born of the Samadhi erases all the impressions.


The practitioner gets established in the transient nature of all in this world. He does not hold himself or the others to their past behaviors. Every moment is fully alive in its freshness. It does not carry the stale baggage of associations. There are no more impressions that stick to the consciousness.
