Yoga-sutras (Ancient and Modern Interpretations)

by Makarand Gopal Newalkar | 2017 | 82,851 words | ISBN-13: 9780893890926

Summary: The English translation of the Yoga-sutras by Patanjali (Patanjala): a comprehensive collection of aphorisms dealing with Yoga—the applied practice and of concentration or meditating the mind on the Atma, finally leading to realization of self. This ancient Indian practice is considered to be over 5000 years old and these sutras of Patanjali are believed to have been composed around 150 B.C.

This study interprets the Yogasutras comparing ancient and modern commentaries (such as those by Vyasa and Osho) supporting both the Sankhya and Vedanta philosophies respectively. This study is not meant to be a commentary.

Other titles: Yogasūtras (योगसूत्रस्), Pātañjala (पातञ्जल), Patañjali (पतञ्जलि).
