There are a gradual fostering of pious impulses,
restraint of the working of senses,
and parrying off of sensual perceptions
through a modification of their intent.
In a still higher state than this,
yogi offer as oblation the functions of all senses
and operations of life-breaths
to the fire of yog that is lit up by knowledge of God.
When restraint is integrated with the Self
and the operations of breath and senses are stilled,
the current which stimulates passions
and the current which propels one towards God merge into the Self.
The outcome of yagya then emerges as God-realization,
the culmination of this spiritual exercise.
When one dwells in the God who had to be realized,
nothing else remains to be achieved.
