Book III. Superpowers.

Samskaras


III.9 At the moment the outgoing samskaras disappear, restraining samskaras appear.

10 The latent impressions flow peacefully.

11 Absorption comes from the ceasing of focusing on all objects and the the rise of focusing on one object.

12 Then, transformation to one-pointed focus occurs when the image in the mind is the same in the past as the present.

13 In this way, the senses can explain the changes in the nature and characteristics of an object.

14 The past, present, and future are consequences exist within the foundation of the dharmin.

15 The change in sequence is the cause of change in transformation.

16 From samyama on the three transformations, comes knowledge of the past and future.

17 Confusion comes from superimposing and mixing up word, meaning, and idea. From samyama, their distinction arises, and knowledge of the utterances of all creatures.

18 By bringing samskaras (latent impressions) into one's awareness, one gains knowledge of previous births.

19 One can can gain understanding of ideas in the minds of others.

20 And that knowledge is supported by the object because it is not the object.
