Yoga Sutra Illustration 2.17

द्रष्टृदृश्ययोः संयोगो हेयहेतुः

drashtri drishyayoh sanyogah heya hetuh

The cause of that avoidable pain is the union of the seer and the seen

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, 2.17

drashtri = seer
drishyayoh = seen
sanyogah = union
heyah = avoidable
hetuh = cause

I don’t know why, but this one made me think about the film dumbo and how he (the seer) thought the feather (the seen) was needed to fly.
