By performing yoga, through accumulated purity and by the storehouse of one's good actions, one arrives at the mysteriously fortuitous first stage (v.38).
The first stage commences with the final understanding that an endless process unfolds in the human mind: as soon as one human desire is fulfilled, the next desire emerges in consciousness and craves to be fulfilled. Due to this insight the adept at this stage becomes overwhelmed by a dispassion (viraga) towards life. Vasistha calls this phase of dispassion (viraga) towards life the stage of renunciation' (nivritti).
The person is now ready to seek out the knowledge of the scriptures. This person should become a deep thinker (Vicarin) v.13.

ALA has shown neuroprotective effects in cerebral ischemia and reperfusion animal Downward Facing Dog Yoga Pose models, excitotoxic amino acid brain injury, mitochondrial dysfunction, diabetic neuropathy, inborn errors of Downward Facing Dog Yoga Pose metabolism, and other causes of acute or chronic damage to nerve tissue including excess levels of iron, copper, or other metals. The significance of preliminary data will depend on further clinical research Packer & Colman, 1999. ALA and CoQ10 may be helpful in poststroke recovery and ischemic heart disease. ALA generates large amounts of glutathione in animal brain models similar to SAMe. For patients who cannot afford SAMe, ALA in combination with vinpocetine can be helpful when ischemia is a major factor, as well as in other brain injuries. A dose of ALA 300 mg t.i. May be useful in traumatic brain injury.
