Yoga Taravali

Sri K Pattabhi Jois (Foroward)

Adi Sankara is one of the most important saints to have lived in India. Founder of the Advaita Vedanta system, his contributions transcended the realms of Hindu philosophy. In his short life spanning thirty two years, he revolutionized Indian thought in many of the existing philosophies and teachings. His works include commentaries on Vedanta Surta-s, Bhagavad Gita and the primary Upanisad-s, apart from numerous poems on various topics.

However little is known about his immense contribution to the field of yoga. Two of Sankara's works illustrate his great regard for Yoga, which has been part of the Indian tradition since time immemorial. One is a beautiful commentary on the Yoga Sutra-s of Patanjali, the master text on Yoga. The other is his composition yoga Taravli.

Through this poem Yoga Taravali, Sankara poetically and metaphorically summarizes the highest teachings of yoga. A must for every yoga enthusiast, this text will not only provide deep insights into the teachings of yoga, but will also indicate Adi Sankrara's mastery over the ancient discipline of yoga.

This handy book is inspired by the interpretations of T Krishnamacharya, who considered Yoga Taravli one of the best poems on the message of yoga. This work includes the original text in Sanskrit with Roman transliteration and translation and commentary by TKV Desikachar, one of the most respected yoga masters of our times, and his student Kausthub Desikachar. The lucid and simple presentation makes this book a handy companion not just to every enthusiast of yoga but also to everyone who follows Adi Sankara's teachings.
