“Samadhi Pada- On Contemplations” I.41

I.41. KSHEENA-VRITTER ABHIJAATASYEVA MANER GRAHEETR-GRAHANA-GRAHYESHU-TATSTHA-TADANJANATAA SAMAAPATTIH

‘For the person who has controlled the vrittis through meditation, there is a merging of the perceiver, perceived, and perception, just  as a crystal assumes the color of the background’.

Commentary:
When the mind waves are controlled, there is complete union between the two. A crystal has no color of its own, yet when placed on a colored background, it assumes and reflects that same color. The pure mind, abandoning its own form, assumes the form of whatever object it meditates.
