2.2 Yoga produces illumination and diminishes obstacles

समाधिभावनार्थः क्लेशतनूकरणार्थश्च

samadhi bhavana arthah klesa tanu karana arthas ca

Yoga produces illumination and diminishes obstacles.

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, 2.2

samadhi = illumination
bhavana = produces
arthah = to obtain
klesa = obstacles
tanu = to diminish
karana = causing
arthas = to obtain
ca = and

I drew two apples to represent the two fruits of yoga described in this sutra.
