The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali: A Scientific Exposition
The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali: A Scientific Exposition
Description
From the Jacket

Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, which contain a wisdom beyond space and time were written about 2600 years ago and they condense the yogic tradition which existed 3000 years before his time. It is due to Pantanjali that Yoga is considered as one of the six major schools of thought from ancient India. The Yoga Sutras are non- theistic and the path to liberation is purely through personal effort.

The present translation with commentary is different as it specifically highlights the scientific aspect of Patanjali's work and is written without any religious and mystical tints. The Sutras are translated in an easily understandable language, with sketches and tables. A chapter on the Indian tradition in the context of yoga is also included. The last chapter reviews the terminology and concepts discussed in the Yoga Sutras. A glossary of all the Sanskrit words is an additional asset of the book.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
