“The five internal disciplines are bodily purification, contentment, intense discipline, self-study, and dedication to the ideal of yoga. 2.32. With body purification, one’s body ceases to be compelling, likewise contact with others. Purification also brings about clarity, happiness, concentration, mastery of the senses, and capacity for self-awareness. Contentment brings unsurpassed joy. As intense disciple burns up impurities, the body and its senses become supremely refined.” 2.40 – 2.43
