IV: 27

Chapter 4, Verse 27

"Others offer their breath of life
And also the powers of life
Into the fire of an inner union
Lighted by a flash of vision."

Swami Shivananda:

"Just as a lamp is kindled by oil, so also is the fire of Yoga kindled by meditation. When the Yogi concentrates the mind, the senses and the breath dissolve into their cause."

Sri Aurobindo:

"There is the discipline by which, when the Self is realized, all the actions of the sense-perceptions and all the actions of the vital being are received into that one still and tranquil Soul."

Wonderful post =)
I especially love the comment by Sri Aurobindo.

We went over the Gita so quickly in class that it will be nice to come here every week to read a verse with some commentary!
