Tatah therefrom, thence
Pratibha light, faculty of spiritual perception
sravana faculty of hearing, auditory sense
vedana faculty of touch
adarsa faculty of vision
asvada faculty of taste
vartah faculty of smell
Through that spiritual perception, the yogi acquires the divine faculties of hearing, touch, vision, taste and smell. He can even generate these divine emanations by his owm will.
Through the dawning of the self-luminous light of intuitive understanding, divine perceptions in hearing, feeling, seeing, tasting and smelling, beyond the range of ordinary perceptions, arise of their own accord.
As the mind is the centre of the functions of the senses of perception, it restricts their powers of hearing, feeling, seeing, tasting and smelling. When the limitations of the mind are removed, the yogi contacts the very core of his being, and has direct, divine perceptions, independent of the sense organs. He is able to hear, feel, see, taste and smell through unlimited space.
