Product description

A great spiritual master of ancient times, Patanjali, presented humanity through his Yoga Sutras with a step-by-step outline of how all spiritual aspirants achieve union with God. He called this universal experience yoga or union. Since then, scholars have written commentaries that bury Patanjali's insights in confusing terms like mental modifications. Thankfully, a modern yoga master, Paramhansa Yogananda, has resurrected Patanjali's original teachings and revelations. In this book, Swami Kriyananda shares Yogananda's crystal clear and easy-to-grasp explanations.

Review quote

The words of a great master, whether written by his own hand or recorded by others, are a vehicle primarily for the transference of his consciousness. By studying his thoughts we receive not only his meaning, but also his vibrations. The vibrations of Patanjali, until now, have been largely obscured by clumsy translations, or often even more obscure "interpretations." The power of this volume is not only clear, simple meaning, but also a clarity of vibration. This is a Patanjali we never knew was there: kind, practical, incisive, yes, but also generous and sympathetic to those who seek to embrace the vision of infinity he has attained.--Asha Praver
