(After reading Raja Yoga by Swami Vivekananda log ago) I have recently started reading Vyasa Bhashya on Yogasutras of Patanjali. I have noticed that Vyasa is many-times quoting some texts in his commentary on Yogasutras.
For example Here is a commentary on Sutra 1.4: (citing Sanskrit commentary from Yoga-vaiśāradī site)
vṛttisārupyamitaratra ॥ 4 ॥
vyutthāne yāścittavṛttayastadaviśiṣṭavṛttiḥ puruṣaḥ। tathā ca sūtram – “ekameva darśanaṁ khyātireva darśanam” iti । cittamayaskāntamaṇikalpaṁ saṁnidhimātropakāri dṛśyatvena svaṁ bhavati puruṣasya svāminaḥ। tasmāccittavṛttibodhe puruṣasyānādiḥ saṁbandho hetuḥ ॥ 4 ॥
[English translation]: On account of objects being presented to it, identifi- cation with modifications takes place elsewhere. The conscious principle (purusa) is not unaffected by whatever may be the modifications of the mind in the state of outgoing activity. And so in the aphorism "Knowledge is but one; discrimination alone is knowledge". The mind is like a magnet energized by nearness alone. Being seen it becomes the possession of its lord, the purusa. Therefore the reason for knowing the modifications of the mind is the eternal relation of the purusa.
Here as we can see, Vyasa quoted one sutra: "ekameva darśanaṁ khyātireva darśanam" but not mentioned where does it come from. Let's see second example which I found at the end of Sutra 1.25:
.....tathā coktam – ādividvānnirmāṇacittamadhiṣṭhāya kāruṇyādbhagavānparamarṣirāsuraye jijñāsamānāya tatraṁ provāceti ॥
.....And so it has been said: — ‘The first Wise Being, the revered Great Sage, informed a self-made mental vehicle out of compassion, and gave the teaching to Asuri who wished to know.
Here we can notice "It has been said". Similarly I found he many-times quoted some Sutras in his Bhashya on Yogasutras writing followed by writing something like "it has been said" (e.g on Sutras 2.5, 2.13, 2.15 etc. and so on) but no mention from where he is quoting the text.
So, I want to know what the source text is, from where Vyasa is quoting sutras (or sayings) in his commentary on Yogasutras of Patanjali.
