The Integrity of the Yoga Darsana: A Reconsideration of Classical Yoga

Ian Whicher (Author)
Synopsis The Integrity of the Yoga Darsana centers on the thought of Patanjali, the great exponent of the authoritative and Classical Yoga school of Hinduism and the reputed author of the Yoga-sutras. In this textual, historical, and interpretive study, Whicher offers a plausible and innovative reading of the 'intention' of the Yoga-sutras, namely that Yoga does not advocate the abandonment or condemnation of the world, but rather supports a stance that enables one to live more fully in the world without being enslaved by worldly identification. Challenging and correcting misperceptions about Yoga drawn by traditional and modern interpretations of the Yoga-sutras, the author argues for a fresh vision of the spiritual potential present in this seminal text, thereby contributing to our understanding of the meaning and practical relevance of Yoga and its reception today. "A superb piece of work, this book provides an original, constructive, and insightful interpretation of the Yoga system."
