This unique edition contains a new translation of the sutras, a commentary by the world's leading teacher of yoga, B K S Iyengar and a forward by Yehudi Menuhin, the renowned musician.
Yoga philosophy was first described in the Yoga Sutra, a collection of aphorisms offered more than 2,000 years ago by the Indian sage Patanjali. Sutras were the earliest - and are still the most profound and enlightening - study of human psyche. In them Patanjali describes the enigma of human existence and shows how through Yoga practice, we can transform ourselves, gain mastery over the mind and emotions and overcome obstacles to our spiritual evolution.
This unique edition renders a new translation of the Sutras and also a commentary by the world's leading teacher of Yoga, B K S Iyengar, who has enriched the text with the wealth of his own experience of the subject.
This is an accessible helpful book, of immense value both to students of Indian philosophy and practitioners of Yoga.
