Pratyahara – Sensory Development and Control

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

Pratyahara – the word means restraint, withdrawal or detachment. It is the fifth place in stages towards our spiritual objective.

Regarding Yoga practice it refers to the ability to withdraw consciousness from the dictatorship of the senses at will. The classical definition is that Pratyahara is ‘a restraint from acceptance of the food of the senses.’

Detachment applies to the aspirant’s attitude to worldly and material things, in order that he may attach himself completely, in the spiritual sense, to God.  It in no way should be interpreted as an indifference to things of the earth.
