It is prudent to note that from a practical point of view – and Chapter Two focuses on the practical aspects of Raja Yoga-that the reason that Yoga is often called the science of Self- ealization, is because its end result is that we realize just who we , not limiting that knowledge to our surface personality, or the ego-led persona that we project out into the world, but discovering the real person, the Self hidden deep inside, which yoga declares to be spirit itself.

Chant the sutras in Chapter Two.
Study and discuss a variety of interpretations of the Sutras in Chapter Two.
Deepen one’s personal mediation practice removing the obstacles that currently prevent this from being a daily habit.
Set personal goals to gain freedom from the 5 Klesha’s (afflicted mind states) and journal the arising insights, stumbling blocks and break throughs.
·Participating as a supportive member of a Sangha – a community of yogi’s and yogini’s practicing together in order to bring about and to maintain awareness as they cultivate, understanding, compassion and harmony.
