      THE "SEER" BEYOND THE MIND:
      MEDITATION FROM THE YOGA SUTRAS
      By Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati

      Sanskrit drasthri is the "seer"
      Who am I?
      What am I?
      Set aside what I am not...
      What I truly am will come shining through.
      Yogash chitta vrittih nirodhah (Yoga Sutra 1.2)
      Yoga is "nirodha" of the thoughts in the mind field.
      Nirodha is coordination, control, regulation, integration, mastery,
      letting go, setting aside...
      Tada drashtuh svarupe'vasthanam (Yoga Sutra 1.3)
      Then the "seer" rests in its own true nature.
      The "seer" is the "witness."
      The "seer" is awareness itself.
      "Drashtuh" is "of the seer."
      Drashtuh is from "drish" which is "to see."
      The "seer" is the self-existent reality of pure consciousness itself.
      It was never born and never dies.
      It is not subject to pain, decay, or decomposition.
      The "seer" lives in the world.
