tatah pratyakcetana adhigamah api antaraya abhavah ca

Meditation on God with repetition of aum removes obstacles to the mastery of the inner self.
vyadhi styana samsaya pramada alasya avirati bhrantidarsana alabdhabhumikatva       anavasthitatvani cittaviksepah te antarayah

These obstacles are disease, inertia, doubt, heedlessness, laziness, indiscipline of the senses, erroneous views, lack of perseverance, and backsliding.
duhkha daurmanasya angamejayatva svasaprasvasah viksepa sahabhuvah

Sorrow, despair, unsteadiness of the body and irregular breathing further distract the citta.

maitri karuna mudita upeksanam sukha duhkha punya apunya visayanam bhavanatah cittaprasadanam

Through cultivation of friendliness, compassion, joy, and indifference to pleasure and pain, virtue and vice respectively, the consciousness becomes favorably disposed, serene and benevolent.

heyam duhkham anagatam

The pains which are yet to come can be and are to be avoided.

Principles which run contrary to yama and niyama are to be countered with the knowledge of discrimination.
