The flame that burns abhinivesa and completely incinerates that sense of self-importance leaving no residue; then this flame of pure seeing burns without wavering.
[This Sanskrit term abhinivesa is central to the understanding in Yoga of the root cause for all tensions that result in our world of chaos, sorrow and confusion. It is translated as the generally all-pervading sense of self-importance that builds the core of the ego structure and, finally, arises as the fear of not continuing to exist: the fear of death. Yoga Sutra II-9]
