Patanjali–The Secret, Old School

Many people have never heard of Patanjali, an indian sage who is credited with authoring the yoga sutras. The yoga sutras are a string of pithy statements that were committed to memory by aspirants and basically outlined the entire path to enlightenment step by step in a methodical way. Many call it the ‘science of yoga’.

Patanjali’s aphorisms are divided into 4 sections. The third section describes many powers that one develops along the path to enlightenment. In the Vibhuti Pada, Patanjali describes exactly how to acquire the strength of an elephant using your concentration. You can basically know or become anything by applying direct concentration in a specific way.
Patanjali was describing “the secret” many many centuries ago!
