Diligent Practice and Surrender
1.12 Stillness develops through practice (abhyasa) and non-identification (vairagya).
abhyasa vairagyabhyam tan nirodhah
1.13 Abhyasa is the effort of remaining present.
tatra sthitau yatnah abhyasa
1.14 Continuous care and attention for a long time establishes this practice.
sah tu dirgha kala nairantaira satkara asevitah dridha bhumih
1.15 Vairagya is the mastery over the craving for what has been seen or heard.
drista anushravika vishaya vitrishnasya vashikara sanjna vairagyam
1.16 The higher vairagya arises from a vision of the Transcendent being (Purusha) and leads to the cessation of craving for the things of the world.
tat param purusha khyateh guna vaitrshnyam
