This is said to be the differentiated form (sakala) of liberation. The undifferentiated (form—niṣkala) is said to (come) at the end of that. Once known the differentiated and the undifferentiated (forms of liberation), the yogi is freed from the mortal condition (martya). I will now expound the sixfold introduction to the differentiated (sakala aspect). [...]”.
