The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali - Book 3 - Union achieved and its Results
28. Concentration upon the Pole-Star will give knowledge of the orbits of the planets and the stars.

This sutra is of small significance to the ordinary student, but is of profound use to the initiate or pledged disciple. Suffice it here to say that this sutra forms the background for all astrological investigation and from an appreciation of its meaning will eventuate an understanding of:

  1. The relation of our solar system to the other six constellations which (with ours) form the seven force centers of which the seven great spiritual influences of our system are the reflections and agents.
  2. The path of our sun in the Heavens and the twelve signs of the Zodiac through which our sun apparently passes. Therefore it will be apparent that this sutra is the key to the purpose of the [304] seven and the twelve upon which all our creative processes are built.
  3. The meaning of the twelve labors of Hercules in their relation to man, the microcosm.
  4. The purpose of our planet, gained by the adept through an understanding of the triplicity formed by:
  5. a. The Pole Star
    b. Our Earth Planet,
    c. The Great Bear.

Other meanings are available to those who hold the key, but the above will suffice to show the deep, though esoteric significance attached to these brief words.
