yogaḥ = union; process of yoking;
citta = mind; consciousness;
vṛtti = activities of the mind; patternings; fluctuations; modifications
nirodhaḥ = complete stilling; restraint; cessation;
One way I like to think of the mind’s activities is as “thought winds“ (what you may have heard referred to as mental fluctuations, modifications, patterning, etc...) If you imagine a lake or lagoon and the air is completely still, the surface of the water will also be still. As the winds pick up, ripples will begin to form. As the winds become more blustery and turbulent, the choppier the surface of the water will be. When the surface of the water is still, you will be able to see an accurate and undistorted mirror image of yourself, your TRUE reflection. When the surface of the water is rippled, it’s impossible to see yourself accurately.
