This subject asks – What is Yoga? It identifies that conjunction and dissociation are central to an understanding of why we practice.
The following quote is taken from BKS Iyengar’s Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali Sutra 1:4.
‘When the seer identifies with consciousness or with the objects seen, he unites with them and forgets his grandeur. The natural tendency of consciousness is to become involved with the object seen, draw the seer towards it, and move the seer to identify with it. Then the seer becomes engrossed in the object. This becomes the seed for diversification of the intelligence, and makes the seer forget his own radiant awareness’.
