The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali - Book 2: Sadhana Pada What relevance does the wisdom of the ancient and timeless practice and philosophy of yoga have for us today? Has the world qualitatively changed such that the principles of life and the dynamics of consciousness as observed by the seers and teachers of ancient times are no longer relevant? Is modern culture’s aim of freedom to pursue desires and experience the world through the senses a sufficient explanation and justification of life? In Sadhana Pada the ageless methods for achieving freedom from desires are presented. These life changing principles and practices are offered here so that they can be tested and experienced in the setting of modern life; the experience of peace that they bring can then be measured against the experience of a life spent fulfilling desires.
This Is That is a radical interpretation of the clues found in Padas 1 and 2 of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. A guide to the practice, the state and the experience of Yoga, it leads the practitioner toward uncovering their own true nature while continuing their self-realization.
Book I Samadhi Pada This book is a Study Guide for the first of the four books of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. It contains the original Sanskrit text with transliteration, English translation, and a word by word breakdown of the translation. There is a thorough commentary on each sutra, which is based firmly in classical yoga, yet written with the Western student in mind. There is an introduction and a comprehensive glossary of the Sanskrit terms used in the text.
The Volume one of the Commentary on the Yoga-Sutras of Patanjali (samadhi-pada) was published in 1984 and is available from the HImalayan International Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy, Route I, Box 400, Honesdale, PA 18431, USA. It was highly acclaimed as a work of rare authenticity, based on thirteen Sanskrit commentaries, synthesized and studied in the light of the oral tradition and direct personal experience in the master-disciple lineage of the yogis. The author is of the opinion that without such personal experience much of the terminology of the Yoga-sutras would remain obscure and any explanation of purely scholastic grounds would be incomplete. The value of the present volume on the Sadhana-pada is further enhanced by adding the study of even more published Sanskrit commentaries as well as unpublished manuscripts. Seven lengthy appendices add to the value of the work as the material presented in these appendices can be further researched and enhanced to form into independent theses. The author makes certain that the works of the previous commentators be examined in the light of how the Sutras are taught in the Himalayan caves among those who practice the various methods and are initiated into them.
The 'Yoga Sūtras of Patañjali' are 196 Indian sūtras (aphorisms) that constitute the foundational text of Ashtanga Yoga, also called Raja Yoga. In medieval times, Ashtanga Yoga was cast as one of the six orthodox āstika schools of Hindu philosophy.
Providing a complete manual for the study and practice of Raja Yoga--the path of concentration and meditation--a new deluxe printing of a collection of timeless teachings is a treasure to be read and referred to again and again by seekers treading the spiritual path. Reprint.
White retraces the strange and circuitous journey of Patanjali's Yoga Sutra from its ancient origins to today, bringing to life the improbable cast of characters whose interpretations and misappropriations led to its revered place in contemporary popular culture.
