samadhih supreme spirit, union putting together
The yogi who has no interest even in this highest state of evolution, and maintains supreme attentive, discriminatwe awareness, attains dharmameghah samadhi. He contemplates the fragrance of virtue and justice.
When the stream of virtue pours in torrents and the consciousness is washed clean of bias, prejudice and ambition, the light of the soul dawns. This is dharma megha samadhi - the fruit of the practice of yoga.
If the yogi, knowing that the highest form of intelligence is also a hindrance, remains uninterested even in this enlightened wisdom as well as in spiritual attainments, virtuousness descends upon him like torrential rain, washing away his individual personality. His only ambition now is to sustain spiritual health. He has purity and clarity. His personality has been transformed. He becomes humane, universal and divine. He lives forever in dharma megha samadhi, unexcelled bliss.
A cloud has two facets. It may cover the sky without bringing rain. This makes the atmosphere gloomy and people become inactive and dull. But if the cloud bursts into rain, the atmosphere is cleared, the sun shines, and people go out to work gleefully.
In the same way, the yogi should not make the consciousness quiet in a lamaiu way, but in an alert, satiric way to shine forth brilliantly to live in the delightful, fragrant rain-cloud of virtue.
He has renounced everything, and is a viveki (one who distinguishes the invisible soul from the visible world), ajnanin (sage), a vairagin (renunciate), and a bhaktan (divine devotee). Now he has attained nirbija samadhi. (1.16, 49-50; in.50, 55-56.)
