PATANJALI S YOGA SUTRA Book Review:

A contemporary interpretation of the foundational text for the practice of yoga. Patañjali’s Yoga Sutra (second century CE) is the basic text of one of the nine canonical schools of Indian philosophy. In it the legendary author lays down the blueprint for success in yoga; now practised the world over. Patañjali draws upon many ideas of his time; and the result is a unique work of Indian moral philosophy that has been the foundational text for the practice of yoga since. The Yoga Sutra sets out a sophisticated theory of moral psychology and perhaps the oldest theory of psychoanalysis. For Patañjali; present mental maladies are a function of subconscious tendencies formed in reaction to past experiences. He argues that people are not powerless against such forces and that they can radically alter their lives through yoga—a process of moral transformation and perfection; which brings the body and mind of a person in line with their true nature. Accompanying this illuminating translation is an extended introduction that explains the challenges of accurately translating Indian philosophical texts; locates the historical antecedents of Patañjali’s text and situates Patanjali’s philosophy within the history of scholastic Indian philosophy.

Inside Patanjali s Words Book Review:

From the author of Inside the Yoga Sutras, comes this new and unique study guide for all who are interested in a deeper dive into the Yoga Sutras. Rev. Jaganath Carrera breaks down each of Patanjali's words so the reader can further grasp the richness and depth of meaning in each of the Sanskrit words. As each word is unpacked, new levels of understanding behind each sutra are revealed. The book also explores different topics in the Yoga Sutras in greater depth that enables the reader to be able to see connections between many of the sutras that span the entire text. Making sense of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali is, at times, like following the travel directions of a giant. A giant's footprints -- huge strides that span mountaintops, rivers, lakes, and cities -- lack many important navigational cues. Without these details, we can become confused, lost, or hesitant to continue. This text attempts to fill in the gaps between these footprints, primarily through an in-depth examination of Patanjali's words -- words that point unerringly to the highest spiritual truths. In this text you will find: Word-for-word dictionary Commentary for key terms, Extensive cross-referencing Insights from sociology and psychology, mythology, Ayurveda, and various faith traditions, The influences that Buddhism and Jainism had on the Yoga Sutras Footnotes that expand and clarify key principles Inspirational quotes, Continuous translation with narration, and topic index sections, for easy referencing of basic themes. Twelve years after his publication of Inside the Yoga Sutras, Reverend Jaganath gives us the much-anticipated sequel, Inside Patanjali's Words. -Sharon Gannon, Cofounder of Jivamukti Yoga Method Pick it up, open to any page. . . see what happens. -Carrie Owerko, senior Iyengar teacher Inside Patanjali's Words is for the serious scholar, but ironically, is also for someone just setting out to study the Yoga Sutras. Each time you read it, whether in bite sizes or larger portions, settle down and uncover another golden nugget in your search for the truth. -Beryl Bender Birch, Developer and Founder of Power Yoga A ravishing and enriching contribution to the world! -Rima Ribbath, senior Jivamukti Teacher This book will give the teacher new insights into how to explain a concept or word and the student much to learn and ponder. It is a pearl except, in this case, a strand of pearls leading to One Truth. -Rev. Amba Marcie Wallace, Co-owner JaiPure Yoga

Embodying the Yoga Sutra Book Review:

Applying the teachings of this book will enliven your yoga practice and deepen your understanding of your Self.”- Gary Kraftsow, author of Yoga for Wellness and Yoga for Transformation Patanjali's Yoga Sutras is the key text of yoga. Yet for many yoga practitioners, its deeper treasures remain either unknown or mired in obscurity. Ranju Roy and David Charlton focus on 18 of the most important sutras and show how each one illuminates the relationship between the body, the breath, and the mind in a practical, clear, and contemporary manner. The sutras are carefully deconstructed, put into context and then developed into ideas for practice. The authors examine the interplay of three key terms: support, direction and space. They suggest that only by taking support on something can you establish a clear direction; and only then can a space open up to grow into. This formula can be applied as successfully to the body (in asana) as to the breath (in pranayama) and the mind (through meditation). With illustrated asana sequences and suggested practices, Embodying the Yoga Sutra is both a practical as well as a deeply philosophical book. Roy and Charlton give readers a whole new vocabulary with which to understand yoga as a living, vibrant and dynamic tradition.

Patanjali Yoga Sutras Book Review:

Composed over two millenniums ago, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali remains the philosophical thread that unites the ancient and current world of yoga. Yet, its many translations are underwhelming, lacking connection to reality and practicality. Innumerable forms and sects of yoga have come and gone in between. Obsessed with gaining special powers over mind and body, yoga’s re-tellers have clouded its history in a mystical mist of fantastic claims. It is human nature to crave powers to radically change our lot in life. These layers of dazzle and glitter have over the centuries led us further away from yoga’s spiritual core. The sutras’ clear, logical, and practical path has been blurred and lost. Radically breaking with this mystical tradition, A. K. Aruna seeks to reclaim for us this fountainhead of yoga by retying the understanding of these sutras to the even more ancient source of spiritual knowledge and yoga—the Upanishads. The Upanishads eschewed limited pursuits in order to seek an ultimate goal that was not time-bound. In this still pure form of the yoga of seeking ultimate, timeless truth, the words of Patanjali become crystal clear and practical. Yoga shines in timeless relevance. A. K. Aruna’s Patanjali Yoga Sutras: A Translation in the Light of Vedanta Scripture has brilliantly refocused the light on the Yoga Sutras. This is a companion, translation only, booklet to the Translation and Commentary version of the text by A. K. Aruna.

Living the Sutras Book Review:

Bring the wisdom of ancient Yoga philosophy into your life in a fresh, accessible, and relevant way. In its highest form, yoga is a practice for your body and your mind. Living the Sutras brings the wisdom of classical yoga philosophy into your life in an accessible and relevant way. The Yoga Sutras, a foundational text of yoga philosophy and practice, written by the guru Patanjali over two thousand years ago, are made up of 196 aphorisms that offer potent teachings on how to deal with loss and pain, and guidance on how to lead a healthy and fulfilling life. Kelly DiNardo and Amy Pearce-Hayden offer an entrée to this yoga training for the mind and spirit by introducing a sutra or group of sutras on a related theme, providing a brief commentary, and writing prompts to allow you to reflect on and apply the meaning of the sutras to your life. The book is at once an introduction to the classical philosophy, a quick guide for students and teachers, and an active self-study that helps you to engage with yoga wisdom in a deeply personal way.

Threads of Yoga Book Review:

A new translation of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali for our present paradigm. Threads uses the lenses of contemporary philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience to "remix" the original stillness and insight of the old book with the best that our age has to offer. The author interweaves the refashioned verses with critical commentary and personal reflections from a decade of practice. "I don't know of any reading of the yoga sutras as wildly creative, as impassioned and as earnest as this. it engages Patanjali and the reader in an urgent, electrified conversation that weaves philosophy, symbolist poetry, psychoanalysis and cultural history. There's a kind of delight and freshness in this book that is very rare in writing on yoga, and especially rare in writing on the yoga sutras. This is a Patanjali for postmoderns, less a translation than a startlingly relevant report on our current condition, through the prism of this ancient text." -- Mark Singleton, author of Yoga Body: The Origins of Modern Posture Practice "This is a massively important work... finally a philosophical text rich in contemporary wisdom that can speak to the radical embodiment and deepening intimacy with ecology and relationship that modern yoga practice inspires. Matthew is not only the most stunning writer in prose working in the (underpaid) world of yoga discourse he's also one of its most fluent cultural critics. More importantly, what he does here is pave a new road forward for the future of Western spirituality: embodied, psychologically informed, with an aesthetic so potent it has the power to heal." -- Shyam Dodge, author of Wet, Hot & Wild American Yogi
