Pata˝jali's path is that of Raja Yoga, the royal yoga, or the yoga of the eight steps: restraint, observances, posture, breath control, sublimation (or withdrawal from the senses), attention, concentration, and meditation. The complete sutras appear here, encompassing a four-part analytical study intended to purify the practitioner's mind, body, and soul. Additional features include a commentary by Veda-Vyāsa and explanations by Vāchaspati-Miҫra that are crucial to developing an understanding of Pata˝jali's intent, along with invaluable background information provided by the translator's introduction and appendixes. This outstanding English edition of a profound work of spiritual enlightenment is essential reading for all scholars and practitioners of yoga.
