33. YS 3.2

 

34. YS 3.3

 

35. Gandhi's meaning is that the hypnotize medium' too is forgetful of all idea of being active but that he is not concentrating his mind on anything; this is so because whatever positive observations the 'medium' makes are due to the hypnotizing 'suggestion' rather than to an endeavor on the part of the 'medium' himself.

 

36. YS3.4

 

37. YS.3.7

 

38. YS.3.8

41.As will be explained just below, a thing undergoes transformation by means of its various properties, a thing's property undergoes transformation by means of its temporal conditions like 'past‑ness', 'present‑ness', 'future‑ness', while a temporal condition of a thing's property undergoes transformation by means of its states like 'raw‑ness', 'ripe‑ness' etc. The technical name for 'thing' is Dharma, for 'property' Dharma, for temporal condition " Lakshan. ", and for 'state' Avastha. Hence Vyas (in the course of his commentary on YS 3.13):   

 

42. YS3.13

 

43. This statement seems inaccurate; for according to the Sankhya philosopher the properties, which have played their part, are still there no doubt but they do not become actively manifest some other day.

 

44. YS 3.14

 

45. YS 3.15

 

46. YS  3.16

 

47. As judged from the next sentence, the argument seems to be that since ordinarily a word becomes meaningful to us, only in case someone tells us, that such is the meaning of this word, what we ordinarily do is to confuse a word with its meaning, or with the knowledge this word conveys.

65. YS 3.33

 

66. YS 3.34

 

67. YS. 3.35; Gandhi speaks as if Sanyam on the Purush is Sanyam on a part of the body, but it will be better to treat this Sanyam as an independent item. Hence our separation of its treatment from that of the rest.
