Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali


1 in stock


The yoga philosophy was first described in the Yoga Sütras, a collection of aphorisms  offered more than 2,000 years ago by the Indian sage, Patanjali. The Sütras were the  earliest — and are still the most profound and enlightening — study of the human  psyche. In them, Patanjali describes the enigma of human existence. He shows how, through yoga practice, we can transform ourselves, gain mastery over the mind and
emotions, overcome obstacles to our spiritual evolution and attain the goal of yoga:  kaivalya, liberation from the bondage of worldly desires and actions, and union with the Divine.

This unique edition contains a new translation of the Sütras and also a commentary by  the world’s leading teacher of yoga, B K S lyengar, who has enriched the text with the  wealth of his own wisdom and experience of the subject. The result is an accessible,  helpful book, of immense value both to students of Indian philosophy and practitioners of yoga.
