Yoga Sutra Illustration 1.19

bhava pratyayo videha prakrti layanam

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, 1.19

bhava = birth
pratyayo = cause, seed
videha = bodiless beings
prakrti layanam = merged with nature

I drew a picture of mount Fuji to represent the feeling when you see something beautiful and it takes your breathe away and you disappear for a moment and only the beautiful view exists – maybe that’s touching the edge of merging with nature.

    I love this….I often feel like this when out in nature, that release as the ego dissolves and you become one with the landscape around you
