Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras belong to the classical age when a learned person thought of writing only when he was sure of the purpose. It was never so mundane as making money or writing for the sake of writing. The various aspects and studies of the subject were considered around the nucleus of the subject matter itself consisting of definition, classification, methods and evaluative results. The practical purpose behind the writing was to aid the students in attaining spiritual realisation.

It was a matter of crucial importance that only an adhikari i.e., person who was interested in attaining spiritual realization studied such classical works. This cautions us that the Yoga Sutras should be studied only by those persons who posses such an interest. The author who wrote the Yoga Sutras had a very important purpose in writing them.

The Thoughts on the Yoga Sutras of Pantajali Presented in this book are made simple and are free rendering of the talks by Dr. Jayadeva who has experienced Yoga and is Practising what he preaches.
