Some teach others to tune in to the OM sound and listen to it. But where is the evidence that it pays for others than world-forsakers?
In and through deep-going, homeward-turning prana-currents a red ruby (chintamanya) is seen as you keep gazing upwards [cf. v. 36].
By looking at the atom of the ultimate Self, the past, future and present and all who are in Brahma (God) can be known [v. 1].
If the tiny star in middle of the Third Eye (funnel) is seen and later bursts - voila, the Old Heart! [cf. v. 26].
In anger, some fall into hell, whatever is meant by that here [One loses the hold of the Self and moves away form the Self - so anger can be quite dangerous.] [cf. v. 27].
One is to renounce the fear of seeing something [cf. v. 27]. (2)
Vishnu is that after-effect poise of kriya [If you do not perform kriya, Vishnu is still Vishnu, many might tell you - Thus, Lahiri gives a kriya related definition of a god that hundreds of millions think is the all-pervading essence of all beings, the master of the past, present and future and beyond past, present, and future, one who supports, sustains and governs the Universe and originates and develops all elements within, as the preserver of the universe." See Wikipedia, s.v. "Vishnu" for more.] [cf. v. 2].
Within five months of sincere kriya practice, the practitioner willl become powerful like the gods and will get mysterious powers. [Such powers could even be so mysterious that others never detect them - You may have found few of that kind if they also have learnt to hide their mysterious sides. The advice: Do not believe a lot. Good meditation practice in time rides above enticements.] [cf. v. 29].
The yoga states are mystic states, and far from easy to relate to outsiders
In natural bliss that wells up, you renounce doing kriya [cf. v. 3].
The entry into the ultimate Self is the door of liberation [cf. v. 26].
The goddess of knowledge is of the Self also
Inside the spine is the goddess of knowledge and rhythms, Aing, also called Saraswati [cf. v. 30].
