Approximately two thousand years old, The Yoga-Sutra of Patanjali is the landmark scripture on classical yoga. In this Yoga Sutras translation the author provides a faithful and informed rendering of the aphorisms (sutras) of Patanjali with a word-by-word analysis. A succinct, penetrating commentary adds further insight, making this a work that no serious student of yoga should be without.
The Yoga Sutras are amongst the world's most revered and ancient teachings and are the earliest, most holy yoga reference. The Sutras are short and to the point -- each being only a line or two long. The Sutras show the reader how we can transform ourselves through the practice of yoga, gradually developing the mind, body and emotions, so we can become spiritually evolved. The Sutras are also a wonderful introduction to the spiritual philosophy that is the foundation of yoga practise.
The book is an accessible and helpful book that is of immense value both to students of Indian philosophy and practitioners of yoga.
