sabda jnana anupati vastu sunyo vikalpah
शब्दज्ञानानुपाती वस्तुशून्यो विकल्पः
Imagination is knowledge arising before it becomes a realityYoga Sutras of Patanjali, 1.9
(like a sandbox for creation 😊)
vikalpah = imagination
sabda = word, sound
jnana = knowledge
anupati = arises
sunyo = without any
vastu = reality
Vikapla seems to be interpreted quite a lot as delusion, manifesting in ways such as the results of misinformation, propaganda and unconscious bias.
But I thought I’d celebrate the wonderfulness of imagination so I drew a sandbox to represent it, thinking how lucky we are to be able to imagine things and the unlimited freedom we have in what we can create there.
