Yoga Sutra 4.30 cessation of taints and karmas

Sūtra IV.30

From that, cessation of taints and karma-s

When that has been attained, Ignorance and the other taints are annihilated, with their roots. The karma-stocks, favourable and unfavourable, are destroyed and their roots killed. On cessation of taint and karma, the Knower is released while yet living. How so? Because the cause of coming-to-be is illusion. When illusion has faded away, no one is ever known to be born anywhere.

From that, cessation of taints and karma-s. When that samādhi called Raincloud of Dharma, corresponding to the maturing of right vision, comes about, has been attained, Ignorance and the other taints are annihilated with their roots, completely dissolved along with the saṃskāra-groups. The karma-stocks favourable and unfavourable are destroyed and their roots killed, They are cut off with their roots, the taints. On cessation of taint and karma, the Knower is released while yet living. How so? Because illusion (viparyaya) i.e. mithyā-jñāna, is the cause of coming-to-be, of birth. When illusion has faded away, no one is ever known to be (re-)born anywhere.
