Matsyasana pose on On the whole, scholars have tended to regard the cosmology of the Yoga Sutras as being essentially agreement with that of classical Samkhya. Thus, there are two fundamental ontological categories. On the one hand we have prakrti, sometimes called drsya (the seen or objective), grahya (that which is grasped, perceived, or that which imprisons or is taken in marriage), alinga (that which is without characteristics there referring to prakrti in her unmanifest state) and pradhana (the chief). On the other hand is purusa, characterized by consciousness. There are many purusas, each one identical. The first transformation of prakrti is the manifestation of subtle mental categories (buddhi, ahamkara and manas) which act rather like lenses or spectacles and allow the purusa to watch the remainder of prakrti s unfoldment and hence the creation and transformation of the universe. The problem is that purusas begin to identify with what they see in prakrti instead of remembering that what is before them is simply a 3-D, five-sense, all-colour spectacular show, put on for their entertainment.
