Identification of Yogi - The yogis look upon all-well-wishers, friends, foes, the pious, and the sinners-with an impartial intellect (6:9) He sees Divine everywhere and everything in divine (6:30). He is happy within, enjoy the delight of God within, and are illumined by the inner light Yoga is not for him wh eats to much or fast too much or sleep too much or who is too wakeful. - A yogi is disciplined in food and recreation, sleep and waking, effort and relaxation (6: 16-17) - His thoughts are fully controlled, he rests only in self (Atman) and who is free from longing of all objects of desire
