Among the most important and influential works in the history of yoga is the Yoga Sutras
of Patañjali, the second century b.c. sage. Long considered a cornerstone of Indian philosophical and religious thought, the Sutras have been translated many times. Among the most respected is this one by Harvard professor and scholar James Haughton Woods, for the highly esteemed Harvard Oriental Series. Included are the complete Sutras along with the comment section by Veda-Vyasa and the Explanation section by Vachaspati-Miçra--all essential to an understanding of Patañjali's intent. Woods' introduction and appendixes provide invaluable background information. A profound work of spiritual enlightenment with universal appeal, the Yoga Sutras in this outstanding English edition will be particularly welcomed by the many thousands of Western students and practitioners of yoga and meditation.
