अपि च संराधने, प्रत्यक्षानुमानाभ्याम् ॥ २४ ॥
api ca saṃrādhane, pratyakṣānumānābhyām || 24 ||
api ca—And moreover; saṃrādhane—in perfect meditation (It is experienced); pratyakṣa-anumānābhyām—from the Sruti and Smriti.
24. And moreover (Brahman is experienced) in perfect meditation, (as we know) from the Sruti and Smriti.
If Brahman is not manifest to us, then we can never know It, and therefore there will be no Freedom. This Sutra says that Brahman is not known only to those whose heart is not purified, but those who are purified realize It in the state of Samadhi when ignorance is destroyed. That this is so is known from the Sruti and Smriti: “Some wise man, however, with his eyes turned inside and wishing for immortality saw the Self within” (Kath. 2 . 4. 1); also Mu. 3. 1. 8 . The Smriti also says the same thing: “He who is seen as Light by the Yogins meditating on Him sleeplessly, with suspended breath, contented minds, and subdued senses” etc.
