Yoga is the science of joining together the individual lower self with the universal higher Self. Yoga is not a belief system or religion nor even a philosophy; it is an extremely practical methodology for systematically expanding the conscious mind.
In just 196 short aphorisms, this classic work of Indian philosophy spells out succinctly how the mind works, and how it is possible to use the mind to attain liberation. Compiled in the second or third century CE, the Yoga-Sutra is a road map of human consciousness—and a particularly helpful guide to the mind states one encounters in meditation, yoga, and other spiritual practices. It expresses the truths of the human condition with great eloquence: how we know what we know, why we suffer, and how we can discover the way out of suffering. Chip Hartranft's fresh translation and extensive, lucid commentary bring the text beautifully to life. He also provides useful auxiliary materials, including an afterword on the legacy of the Yoga-Sutra and its relevance for us today.
Yoga Sutras of Patanjali: The Complete Guide with Translations and Commentary Yoga focuses on meditation, pose, breath, and overall control over the mind and body. In this practice comes the road to enlightenment, and understanding of karma and reincarnation, and the explanation of the external mind-images in comparison to the true self and eternal wisdom that connects everything. It is through continued practice and dedication in meditation and the other methods of seeing beyond the external that the sacred text expands spiritual knowledge. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali is one of the main sources of inspiration for these practices. This is a new translation and verse-by-verse commentary on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and it aims to simplify the language and make it accessible for audiences both new and old to the subject matter. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are broken up into four books: Book I: On the Contemplation of the Spirit Book II: On the Discipline of the Spirit Book III: On the Divine Power of the Spirit Book IV: On the Freedom of the Spirit Other than verse-by-verse commentary, this translation also provides commentary on a general overview of each of the four books in the Sutras. Piecing together each section, the road to enlightenment and the eternal wisdom of Yoga is explored with focus on the distinction between the external man and the spiritual man. The guidance of practices and dedication is retained without the confusion of Sanskrit and dated translations that rely heavily on the poetics of the verses. Both the literal and the figurative meanings of more complicated verse are expounded upon, and commentary avoids indulgence on the overly-intellectual with preference towards clear and actionable instruction and knowledge.
Perceptions of Truth, The Yoga Sutras of Patañjali, Deciphering the Sacred Code of the Siddha Sages, explores a new insight into an ancient teaching. That there is a sacred code hidden within the Yoga Sutras is a novel assertion in the study, translation and commentary on the Yoga Sutras. When the process of 'harmonic resonant alignment' is applied to the translation a very different and compelling message emerges. The Yoga Sutras of Patañjali are one of the most important works in the study of Yoga and form the basis of much of what we understand about the precepts of the Yogic path. Sutra, which is usually translated in English as "an aphorism", literally means "a thread". The Yoga Sutras of Patañjali are like a rosary in which the beads are the divine truths. Some extraordinary writings contain veiled meaning and coded texts. Implicit within their words and symbols are expressed two or more meanings, one for the casual reader who may happen upon the work and another deeper meaning for those who can decipher the code and interpret the underlying significance. The process applied here looked at each word from the original Devanagri Sanskrit script, transliterated and then translated them into English, according to the perceived intention of the informing spirit, that of Maharishi Patañjali. Through the process of harmonic resonant alignment the meaning of the each word is selected and a higher knowledge combined with reason guides the process of interpretation. With this translation of the Yoga Sutras of Maharishi Patañjali is presented a deciphering of the underlying meaning of the Sutras based on the perceived intention and meaning conveyed by Patañjali.
Patanjali's Yoga Sutras are a great treatise on yoga and one of the deepest forms of psychology in the world today. The Yoga Sutras are a map for our lives as well as a bridge between eastern and western studies of the human psyche. The teachings of the Yoga Sutras are important because the verses give the reason why we are practicing yoga.
A landmark new translation and edition Written almost two millennia ago, Patañjali's work focuses on how to attain the direct experience and realization of the purusa: the innermost individual self, or soul. As the classical treatise on the Hindu understanding of mind and consciousness and on the technique of meditation, it has exerted immense influence over the religious practices of Hinduism in India and, more recently, in the West. Edwin F. Bryant's translation is clear, direct, and exact. Each sutra is presented as Sanskrit text, transliteration, and precise English translation, and is followed by Bryant's authoritative commentary, which is grounded in the classical understanding of yoga and conveys the meaning and depth of the sutras in a user-friendly manner for a Western readership without compromising scholarly rigor or traditional authenticity. In addition, Bryant presents insights drawn from the primary traditional commentaries on the sutras written over the last millennium and a half.
A collection of classic essays by two highly regarded scholars on the development of yoga and its rapport with other religious traditions. Georg Feuerstein, one of the world's foremost scholars of yoga, and Jeanine Miller, long recognized for her insightful commentaries on the RgVeda, here pool their considerable talents in a look at the development of yogic thought across the ages and its similarities with the Christian mysticism of Meister Eckhart. Two of their essays included here, one concerning the essence of yoga and the other looking at the meaning of suffering in yoga, have long been singled out by indologists for correcting prevalent misconceptions and providing a conceptual framework for many of the subsequent studies in that field. The reprinting of these important essays in The Essence of Yoga gives new readers a chance to share some of the authors' earliest insights into yoga and their deep conviction that these discoveries are of the highest significance for a proper understanding of the human condition.
