Overview for The Yoga of Patanjali: With an Introduction, Sanskrit Text of the Yogasutras, English Translation and Notes

There is renewed interest in Yoga currently all over the world.The law of supply and demand has ensured a constant supply of courses in Yoga as a cure for the ills from which modern society is suffering.This study brings out very clearly the essentials of Yoga as explained in the Yogasutras of Patanjali, which is the most ancient and authoritative text on the subject.The author further suggests a methodology of textual interpretation i.e. how to determine the original message of an author, when his work is overlaid by a number of commentaries and further commentaries on these commentaries.He has also made an attempt to present a historical exposition of the origin and the influence of Yoga on the other indigenous systems and vice versa.

Although there is a widespread interest in Yoga, there is very little understanding that Yoga is something more than a physical or mental drill, that it is a way of life, a preparation for the realization of one's spiritual destiny. It is not only meant for those who are willing to take to an ascetic life, but is equally relevant to one who wishes to live a normal life as a member of society. It is an instrument for the simultaneous growth of intellect and character, which is essential for the total development of his personality. Yoga is, therefore, a method for the development of human potentialities.
