Yoga Sutra 2.40

A little look at the second Yoga Sutra

śaucāt-sva-aṅga-jugupsā paraiḥ-asaṁsargaḥ

As a result of purification, you achieve detachment from the body and others

If you achieve the highest level of purity then you will discover two sides to your personality: the source of eternal light, and the decaying physical body that is in constant need of attention. As such, you are no longer seduced by societies indulgences or social etiquette. Unlike the weak minded, you rise above the external charms of modern life. Such withdrawal is spontaneous and positive and others will bathe in the light that you radiate.
