B.K.S. Iyengar - Core Of The Yoga Sutras
The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are 196 aphorisms forming the foundational text of yoga philosophy. Each sutra is short and to the point - each being only a line or two long. In 'Core of the Yoga Sutras' BKS Iyengar has translated each one, providing an insightful commentary and explanation for modern readers, as well as linking the various themes throughout the sutras to one another.
Each sutra is presented as Sanskrit text, transliteration and English translation, followed by BKS Iyengar's unique commentary. BKS Iyengar's insight on 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. This is a wonderful introduction to the spiritual philosophy that is the foundation of yoga practice.
Throughout his life, BKS Iyengar devoted himself to his lifelong practice, study and teaching of yoga becoming the greatest exponent of yoga the world has yet seen. Iyengar was among the first teachers to bring yoga from the East to the West. Teaching until his mid-nineties, a remarkable and inspirational feat in itself, BKS Iyengar remained a student until the end. He believed wholeheartedly in yoga for all, irrespective of sex, race, class or creed. He has written a vast number of inspirational books in which he explored diverse aspects of yoga.
