prayatnād yatamānas tu
yogī saṁśuddha-kilbiṣaḥ
tato yāti parāṁ gatim

‘The sedulously exerting yogi becomes assoiled of sin; and obtaining perfection after many births[1. Cp. Bh. Gita. VII-3, and VII-19.], thence passes on to the Supreme State.’

Such is the greatness or virtue of this Yoga that merit goes on accumulating as man passes through many an incarnation, and purifying him by disengaging him from all defilement.

Thus does he become more and more competent for prosecuting Yoga. And, by force of strenuous effort, despite (failures or breaks), he surely makes his way to the Supreme Goal.

The superiority, above all others, of that yogi, who has chosen the Highest of human Ambitions (ātma-realisation) is now stated:—
