Yoga Sutra 2.43 from destruction of impurity by tapas, perfection of body and senses

Sūtra II.43

From destruction of impurity by tapas, perfection of body and senses

As tapas becomes complete, it destroys the veiling taint of impurity; when the veiling taint is removed, there are perfections of the body like the ability to become minute, and perfection of the senses in such forms as hearing and seeing things which are remote.

From destruction of impurity by tapas, perfection of the body and senses. As tapas becomes complete, it destroys the veiling taint of impurity. The sense is that some particular practice of tapas has been perfected.

When the taint (mala) of that covering is removed, there are perfections of the body like the ability to become minute (aṇimā). The taints (mala) of the physical body, born of the conjugation of mother and father, of seed and womb and food, etc., are entirely removed by tapas. Thereby comes perfection of the body in such forms as becoming minute and so on. The taint which veils the senses by unrighteousness (a-dharma), etc., arising from their contact with the objects, is washed away by the rush of a stream of tapas. Then there is perfection of the senses in such forms as hearing and seeing things which are remote.
