In the third pada, Patanjali dives into the benefits of Yoga. The Sanskrit term Vibhutitranslates to ‘power’ or ‘manifestation’. The Sutras in this chapter explain the last three limbs of the Ashtanga Yoga path (Yoga Sutra 3.1 – 3.3).
This pada also introduces the notion of samyama in Yoga Sutra 3.4 to 3.9, which is the simultaneous practice of Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi. Samyama are the foundation to obtain the powers of Yoga (also known as siddhis).
In a few Yoga Sutras (3.10 – 3.16), we learn about Parinama (transformation) that comes with the practice of Yoga.
For the majority of this pada (Yoga Sutra 3.17 – 3.49) Patanjali teaches the variety of Siddhis one can obtain e.g. knowledge of the future, or of previous births. He closes off this pada with an introduction to Kaivalya.
In this sense, kaivalya is liberation or release from ignorance and the suffering it brings.
YOGA SUTRA 3.4 takes the spotlight today and till sutra 3.9, the simultaneous practice of DHARANA, DHYANA & Samadhi
