2.22 For those where the seen’s purpose is accomplished, it is destroyed, but not for others, being universal

कृतार्थं प्रति नष्टमप्यनष्टं तदन्यसाधारणत्वात्

krtartham prati nastam apyanastam tad anya sadharanatvat

For those where the seen’s purpose is accomplished, it is destroyed, but not for others, being universal.

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, 2.22

krita = accomplished
artham = purpose
prati = towards
nashtam = destroyed
api = although
anashtam = not destroyed
tat = that
anya = others
sadharannatvat = being universal

To try to represent this I drew some birds in a nest. When baby birds can fly the nest isn’t needed anymore. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t still nests. 🐣💕
