Pratyakshanumanagamaha pramanani

The different type of proof the mind needs are the apparent experiential proof, inferential proof and also scriptural proof. – Patanjali Yoga exercise Sutra # 7

Pratyaksha suggests apparent, experiential. Our mind frequently wishes to have an apparent, strong, experiential evidence. This is one mode of activity of the mind. Another is anumana, which suggests, it is not so obvious, yet you infer and also whatever you presume, you believe.

Agamaha is the proof the mind draws from bibles or from books. Due to the fact that it is written. Also today in specific remote towns, anything published is the plain truth. Many individuals state that given that something is composed it has to be right. We are constantly searching for evidence of something or anything.

Yoga is when you drop this search and follow in the Self. Abiding in the Self does not require proof. Truth can not be recognized via evidence. God is past evidence. You can not show God, nor could you disprove God.

Proof is attached to reasoning and also logic is extremely restricted in its province. This is the exact same with enlightenment, exact same with love. Love could never ever be shown or refuted. This is not in the realm of the seer. The seer is past proof.
