About The Book

(Excerpts from foreword) sadasiva was intrinsically and esocterically caught up by the maxim that one has to (Phenomenally) die to (noumenally or spiritually) live for ever. Divine filiation it is ,defying description of any human language, it being a reality of different inexplicable dimension.

Phanindra's (patanjali's) Aphorisms became divinely fortunate for us to be commented by H.H. Sri Sadasivendra Sarasvati avadhuta in his vrt'ti, Ambrosia of yoga, which excells and amplifies the original patanjala sutras by highlighting the operation of the quintessence of siva sutras ,Vijnanabhairava techniques etc., in the life development, perfection and cosmicization of sadasiva's pehnomenal and transcendental life's complete sojourn.."

The commentary of his holiness Sri Sadasivendra Avadhuta (whose samadhi is a Nerur, karur taluka, in the District of Trichinopoly, south India) is not only a written ,or dictated, commentary but a living one for that matter, as his entire life of sadhana has explained the complete of the text of the above Yoga Aphorisms in action. That is why his commentary is superbly easy and meaningful, comprehensible to all followers, besides for the simple reason that sadasiva has not displayed his intellectual gymnastics or phenomenal acrobatics but has proved the infallible contents of the said Aphorisms through nothing but translating them into his own practice."
