In this month's discussion, Annie and Jen unpack sutra 2.33 from "The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali." When negative thoughts arise, this sutra advises that we cultivate the opposite.
Is Patanjali advocating for spiritual bypassing? Or is this an early form of cognitive behavior therapy?
And how might more modern interpretations of this sutra be used to inadvertently cause harm?
