Yoga Sutras of Patanjali 2.2

Standard

They (the 3 principles of kriya yoga)help us minimize obstacles and attain samadhi

That Yoga of action (kriya yoga) is practiced to bring about samadhi and to minimize the colored thought patterns (kleshas)

Here, Patanjali is giving a rationale for practising Kriya Yoga – to minimize the obstacles and attain samadhi. Everything we do in our asana practice is all part of our preparation for meditation and samadhi.
