vivekanimnam flow of exalted intelligence in consciousness
kaivalya indivisible state of existence, emancipation
bharam gravitation, influence, importance
Then consciousness is drawn strongly towards the seer or the soul due to the gravitational force of the exalted intelligence.
When the exalted intelligence is ablaze, consciousness is illumined; it becomes free and tinged with the divine (citta suddhi). Due to this divine light, citta, with its exalted intelligence, is attracted as if by a magnet towards its source - the indivisible seer who is alone, free and full.
Before reaching the state of exalted intelligence, consciousness is attracted more towards the pleasures of the world. When intelligence is free from doubts and prejudices, it gravitates towards the absolute seer.
As a farmer builds dykes between his fields to regulate the flow of water, similarly, exalted intelligence builds a dyke for the consciousness, so that it does not move again towards the world, but turns and flows towards union with the divine seer. This is kaivalya, an existence filled with freedom and beatitude. Such a yogi becomes a king amongst men.
