With SUTRA 3.8 Dharana, dhyana, and samadhi also become external: The three part process of concentration, meditation, and samadhi are practiced in relation to objects. Nirbija samadhi is seedless samadhi (and already mentioned, discussed and looked into back when we studying yoga sutra 1.51), and that Nirbija Samadhi has no object, not even the tiniest seed of an object. From the vantage point of this seedless samadhi, the process of samyama (dharana, dhyana, samadhi) comes to be seen as external, just like happened in the case of the first five rungs, as mentioned in the last sutra (3.7). Thus, eventually, all eight rungs of the Yoga Sutras come to be seen as external practices, when considered in relation to nirbija samadhi.
Voila, we are travelling into inner, inner, inner realms. Buckle up. We have not yet reached the real Samadhi, the highest, but a lower stage, in which this universe still exists as we see it, and in which are all these powers.
And its EARTH day, so why not venture into the element earth again for the pure beautiful honest celebration of Earth as Element that we are all made of and Earth us Mother, who gives birth to us all, sustains us and takes us back into her womb, no matter what.
