The Yoga system of Philosophy is the most popular discipline in Indian Studies today. Maharsi Patanjali has presented systematic description of this Philosophy in 195 Sutras, dividing them into four books. His great work is recognized as the most authoritative literary contribution in Sanskrit on Yoga. It is generally accepted that the treatise 'Patanjala-Yoga-Sutram' is not easy to comprehend by learners because these Sutras comprise deep philosophical concepts that are grounded in profound scientific basis.

We have observed that a large number of inquisitive people are diligently pursuing this ancient text to understand the mysteries of 'eternal life', as well as for being healthy, happy and living a soothing life. A careful study of the Yoga-Sutras of Patanjali is needed to answer many questions of human life. This edition with English commentary is brought out with the intention to interpret Yoga-Sutras in a simple way for the curious readers.

After going through a couple of well-known ancient and modern commentaries, the author has followed the original commentary of Vyasa as the main source. It is included for the use of Sanskrit-students. Transliteration of Sutras will help those who are not well-versed in Sanskrit.

We hope that this publication will inspire readers to partake in deeper study of Yoga techniques of ancient India.

Introduction
The Philosophy of Yoga propounded by Maharsi Patanjali deals with some of the greatest mysteries of life and the universe. It solves the questions related with inner life and helps to fulfil spiritual needs of the aspirants. Real purpose and technique of Yoga is to give a healthier body, a peaceful mind, and a meaningful life for human beings. Constant development of mental levels is seen in this ancient spiritual discipline of Yoga. It finds mention in the Vedas, the Upanisads, the Gita and other Hindu scriptures. The philosophy of Yoga is mentioned in the Sanskrit scriptures in scattered form, which Maharsi Patanjali put in a systematic way about 3000 years back. As this treatise is in Sutras (Aphorisms), it is also called Yoga-Sutra.

In the Yoga Philosophy man is considered an entity, created by the union of three- mind, body and Self (Atman). After knowing the relation of these, one obtains purification, and finally achieves a blissful state. The mind is very fluctuating and instable. Technique of Yoga restrains its modifications and makes it peaceful. There are two important aspects of creation -Animate (Cetana) and inanimate (jada).The inanimate (jada) aspect is also called Mula- prakrti, Pradhana or Avyakta. Its manifested (Vyakta) form is whole creation. The aspect which brings consciousness in this is called Purusa. The Purusa or Atman is always conscious, and different from Mida-prakrti. There is a third aspect in Yoga philosophy which is called Isvara. It is above Prakrti and Purusa.
