Bahirakalpita vrttir maha-videha;tatah prakasavarana-ksayah.
= outside; external Akalpita = unimaginable Vrttir
= state (of mind) Maha-videha = (name of a)
Yogic Siddhi enabling the Yogi to remain without a body (here, the mental body) Tatah
= thence; from it Prakasa = (of) light Avarana = covering
Ksayah = wasting away.
The power of contacting the state of consciousness which is outside the
intellect and is therefore inconceivable is called Maha-videha. From it is destroyed
the covering of light. (III-44)
Pure consciousness is the basic stuff of which this
entire creation including various aspects of our being is just a manifestation. We
are nothing but corrupted from of the universal consciousness. Our perception of
the world, through this limited consciousness, is there imperfect. We can not
even imagine (akalpita = unimaginable) the true wonder of this world unless we
come out (Bahir) of this self imposed shell. The light of our pure consciousness
(prakasha) is dissolved (ksayah) by purification of the mind by the practice of Samyama
(Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi). Maha-Videha vrtti is that state of our mind where
we transcend, through Samadhi, the normal state and plunge in the realms
of intuition beyond this body (deha) mind complex.
