Su­tra I.35

The ex­pe­ri­ence of sub­tle, di­vine lev­els of the senses also es­tab­lishes steadi­ness in the mind.

EACH OF THE FIVE SENSES

can be a ve­hi­cle for sub­tle, di­vine ex­pe­ri­ences that can bring peace and steadi­ness to your mind and move you to­ward samadhi (union with the ab­so­lute)—the eighth and fi­nal limb of yoga. Sen­sory ex­pe­ri­ences—such as vi­sions, sounds, tastes, aro­mas, and phys­i­cal sen­sa­tions—can come nat­u­rally as a func­tion of grace, or they can be the re­sult of cer­tain tech­niques and prac­tices. These sen­sory per­cep­tions can bring great calm­ness and peace and serve as a gate­way to an ex­pe­ri­ence of tran­scen­dence.
