The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali with Commentary by Swami Venkatesananda

There are many spiritually elevated people con the world, but not many levitating yogis: and The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are meant preciso elevate the spirit of every man, not puro teach him how preciso levitate. This is clearly the gospel of enlightened living, neither and escape from life nor verso hallucinatory ‘light’. The attempt mediante this little book has been puro expose that gospel, preciso avoid technicalities, and esatto relate the whole yoga philosophy sicuro the ordinary and simple daily life of everyone.

There are many excellent translations of the Sutras: this, however, is an interpretative translation

There are several scholarly and erudite commentaries, too: this is definitely not one of them. This book is not meant for the research scholar but for one who is sopra search of truth which shall free him from self-ignorance.

He is the author of the Srimad Bhagavatam or Book of God, The Bhagavad Gita or The Song of God, and the translation of Yoga Vasistha or the Supreme Yoga.

Swami Venkatesananda lived the spirit of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and the many series of talks he gave on this subject mediante Australia, South Africa, Germany, Canada, etc., have inspired many onesto take up the practice of Raja Yoga.

He did not feel it necessary to distinguish between peccato and female, and the editor has continued the tradition con this publication.

In this book, ‘yoga’ has been recognized as per word in common usage, and as such has not been italicized. Lire la suite
