Description

Edwin F. Bryant's translation of and commentary on Patanjali's Yoga Sutras set a new standard for readers interested in one of the most important classical texts of Eastern world thought.
Written almost two millenia ago, Patanjali's great work focuses on how to attain direct experience and realization of the purusa: the innermost individual self, or soul. As the classical treatise on the Hindu understanding of mind and consciousness and on the tecnique of of meditation, it has exerted immense influence over the religous practices of Hinduism in India and more recently the West.
Bryant presents each sutra in sanscrit text, in transliteration, and in precise, clear. direct English translation. His authoratative commentary, drawing insights from the primary classical commentaries written on the sutras over the last millennium and a half, conveys the meaning and depth of each sutra to Western readers in a user friendly manner but withoiut compromising scholarly rigor or traditional authenticity.
