Yogasutras of Patanjali Web Series – Video 14

We welcome you once again to video 14 of the web series on Yogasutras of Sage Patanjali. In the journey so far, we have arrived to sutra number 1.8 of chapter 1 i.e. Samadhi Pada. This series is meant for removing all the complications in the understanding of this text. This text helps to simplify life and understand existential questions. It helps in increasing our day to day well being and hence the necessity to take it to the masses. We are happy that you are with us in this journey to help you become a complete yogi. Let the learning continue.

विपर्ययो मिथ्याज्ञानमतद्रूपप्रतिष्ठम् ॥१.८॥
॥1.8॥ Viparyayo mithyājñānam atadrūpapratiṣṭham

॥1.8॥ Wrong knowledge is knowledge which is false and not based upon the true nature of its object.

– viparyayaha = wrong knowledge
– mithyaa = illusory
– jnaanam = knowledge
– atad = not its own
– rupa = nature
– pratishtham = based on

Practical Application: The best point about wrong knowledge is that it can be corrected with right knowledge. Correction need not be with direct perception or inference. Faith in the right text lets us tweak ourselves to be better than yesterday and helps us find lesser fault with others.
