Yoga Sutra Illustration 1.21

tivra samveganam asannah

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, 1.21

tivra = vigorous
samvaganam = enthusiasm, passion
asannah = brings nearer

This one seems to say that if there is vigorous enthusiasm then you will get nearer to illumination. The fire is to represent vigorous enthusiasm and the people (and dog) around the fire are illuminated by it.
