The thirty-second yogic sutra explains about the state of dharma megha samadhi and how a person now dwells in its light. The qualities of gunas come to an end, having satisfied their purpose. The order of consecutive transformations also ceases to function. These successive mutations and rhythmic sequences and their qualities - sattva, rajas and tamas, also come to a culmination. The essence of intelligence and the essence of consciousness now pull back to rest in the dwelling of the soul. The soul finally is independent.

When dharma megha samadhi is attained, qualities of nature (gunas) come to rest. Having fulfilled their purpose, their sequence of successive mutations is at an end.
Having transformed the yogi's consciousness by the radiation of the rays of the soul, the orderly mutations and rhythmic sequences of the qualities of nature, sattva, rajas and tamas come to an end. Their tasks are fulfilled, and they return to nature.
The essence of intelligence and the essence of consciousness both now retire to rest in the abode of the soul. The master, the seer or the soul, is independent. He keeps the gunas in suspension, or uses them when necessary. They enthusiastically serve him as committed servants, without influencing him as before, and without interfering in his true glory.
