Dharana Dhyana and Samadhi

“The final stage is Samadhi, where we enter a phase in which we transcend the concept of dualism. We lose our sense of individuality and experience a sense of completeness. We see through the veil of maya, if only for short periods we see reality for what it is, not from behind our individual neurosis”

The last four limbs of Patanjalis Ashtanga yoga system describe Pratayahara Dharana Dhyana and Samadhi. This article is primarily looking at the last three, but a recap of Pratayahara seems prudent. Pratayahara is the first of the last four limbs and is usually described as sense withdrawal. I prefer to think of it as withdraw from the outcome of our sensory apparatus. At this stage we can’t not be aware of what our senses are perceiving, but we do have a choice as to whether we engage with them.

The final three stages are often studied together
