baleṣu hastibalādīnī ||25|

By making Samyama on the strength of the elephant, etc., that strength comes to the Yogi.

When a Yogi has attained to this Samyama and wants strength, he makes a Samyama on the strength of the elephant, and gets it. Infinite energy is at the disposal of everyone, if he only knows how to get it. The Yogi has discovered the science of getting it.

By making Samyama on that effulgent light comes the knowledge of the fine, the obstructed, and the remote.

When the Yogi makes Samyama on that effulgent light in the heart he sees things which are very remote, things, for instance, that are happening in a distant place, and which are obstructed by mountain barriers and also things which are very fine.
