In this talk, Swamiji describes a Yogi who has attained Atma Sthiti and also discusses Brahma Sthiti.

Reciting from the 6th chapter, Swamiji states that a Yogi is in the Atma Sthiti when he is established in the Atma-the Self, not through any external force but solely through an inner discipline. When such a Yogi is anchored in the inner presence, his mind is like the non flickering and steady flame of a lamp which radiates light all around. Having transcended all sensory attractions, he remains unmoved and unagitated.

In Brahma Sthiti the Yogi is established in samatva or a state of equipoise, not just in meditation but through all worldly interactions. This is a knowledge experience which gets firmly lodged in his resolute intellect. He experiences a state of inner bliss and inner enlightenment. In this state, the knower of Brahman has actually become Brahman.
