This 'jewel' of which Mabel Collins is writing, is no diamond dug out of the darkness of the earth, but is no less a thing than the mind of man when it has been drawn from the darkness of material life and become perfectly clear. It then, when directed upon any object, is able to entirely perceive and understand it, by the same method that a rock-crystal takes on the hue of a coloured substance with which it is brought into contact. This is the condition of conscious trance-like clairvoyance, which is attained by those who practise what is called the 'Yoga of devotion'. Hence, this book is important to anyone in 'Yoga'.

From page 106:

" By light is here meant the light of entire passivity, which is identical with that of the Soul, ever blissful and free. The covering consists of the phenomenal which is a result of 'Karma'. By the practice of prāṇāyāma this covering is removed, and the real nature of the Soul is realised for once and for ever. The mind (Aphorism LIII.) then becomes fit for being quite absorbed in the subject thought of. 'Absorption' has to be carried to the extent of forgetting the act, and of becoming the thing thought of; it is then the Yoga trance or 'samādhi'. "
