Shri Rama - Yoga Sutra of Sage Patanjali

Before we proceed with our sutra by sutra exposition, it is necessary to understand the underlying idea of Advaita in Vedanta. Creation is, always was, and ever will be. Creation, as we understand, stands for Param Satyam; therefore, no part of it is ever dissolved and no part of it does ever get created. There is no end nor beginning in Creation. It is always the same.

Even in Creation we imagine states within Param Satyam (which is, in a way, false, but to be understandable and meaningful to the average intellect it has to be so spoken) and call such states Madhyama Satyam and Satyam.

Then Satyam in its creative aspect we denote as Divine Wholeness, or Tapah, and further come down to the level of Janah, the Divine Fragments. We also state that there is no difference between Divine Wholeness and Divine Fragments, that it is not a state of multiplicity because each Divine Fragment can merge into and re-emerge from one another, as well as merge into and re-emerge from Divine Wholeness. So the Many from the One does not imply multiplicity and from Param Satyam to Divine Fragment --each fragment also is Param Satyam -- there is no duality. The Advaita idea of Vedanta is not contradicted.

So Param Satyam is made to assume the states of Madhyama Satyam, Satyam, Tapah or Divine Wholeness, and Janah or domain of Divine Fragments. Yet the entire Creation is One - no duality at all exists therein - that is Advaita.

Patanjalacharya's Yogasutras by Godfrey Devereux

The yoga sutras of Patanjali are the bible of yoga. They present a map of the human condition in terms of consciousness. Specifically they outline the transformation in awareness that dissolves the sense of separateness at the root of all psychological suffering. This transformation occurs as a result of seeing into the functional mechanism of the mind. By enquiring into the activity of the mind the way it operates becomes increasingly apparent.
Patanjali outlines eight aspects to this process, known as the eight limbs of yoga: Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, Samadhi. These eight limbs outline the transformation that is the process of yoga: from dualistic thinking to open awareness.
