Patañjali's yogasūtra 1:12 abhyāsa & vairāgya

Patañjali's yogasūtras 1:1-11* were about the purpose of yoga and a description of citta-vṛittis. From this sūtra on, we learn how to suppress or block them. 


अभ्यासवैराग्याभ्यां तन्निरोधः 

abhyāsavairāgyābhyāṃ tan nirodhaḥ

Their inhibition [is brought about] by [persistent] practice and non-attachment

अभ्यासवैराग्याभ्याम्  तत् निरोधः

अभ्यास - repetition  exercise, drill, practice; masculine noun

वैराग्य - disinclination, indifference to worldly objects, freedom from all worldly desires; neuter noun

अभ्यासवैराग्याभ्याम् = a dvandva compound अभ्यास+वैराग्य with a dual instrumental ending = by means of these two [अभ्यास, वैराग्य] 

तत् - genitive plural तेषाम् (of the citta-vṛittis)  in compound, and in sandhi before the 'na' of nirodha

निरोधः - obstruction, stoppage, inhibition, blockage; masc noun from rudh 

*(These sūtras are translated on this blog in previous posts)

Another good idea is to use an iron wood coffee table or carved coffee table along a wall
and use it to display family photos as well as knick knacks from all your world
tours. If you wish to have a casual evening party,
you can set the party table in a buffet style and have all the table wares at
one end and have floral arrangements on the other side.
Turn on those creative juices and keep an open mind.

All skill levels, for teens and adults. In the Google local search result, you can find the
restaurant physical address and website address. The natural response to the warmer
weather would be to enjoy the outdoors rather than baking in your kitchen, but it is quite the opposite.

The important thing to remember is to first make way for
the basic necessities. These add to the overall comfy ambience
of the home theater interior design and the concept of
the entire room having one similar color makes for a better viewing and listening experience.

Experience and practice in this sphere play a great role in the
future activity of any interior designer.

I don't know if it's just me or if everyone else encountering

Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this
is happening to them as well? This may be a problem with my browser because
