Georg Feuerstein - The Yoga-sutra of Patanjali
Approximately two thousand years old, The Yoga-Sutra of Patanjali is the landmark scripture on classical yoga. The translation and commentary provided here by Georg Feuerstein are outstanding for their accessibility and their insight into the essential meaning of this ancient and complex text.
A scholar of international renown who has studied and practiced yoga since the age of fourteen, Feuerstein also brings to The Yoga-Sutra of Patanjali experience as a professional indologist. His faithful and informed rendering of the aphorisms (sutras) is based on extensive personal research into the Sanskrit sources. Each word is explained so that the entire text becomes readily available to the western reader and student of yoga.
Patanjali's Yoga Sutra's are among some of the oldest texts on yoga. The Sutra's are short and to the point - every Sutra is only one or two lines long. The text lays out the meaning of yoga, why it's practiced, and what its effects are on the mind and soul. The Yoga Sutra's are also a beautiful first encounter with the spiritual philosophy that forms the basis of modern yoga. The book is very accessible and of great value for students in Indian philosophy and yoga practitioners.
