Book Description :

This is a scriptural commentary of Lahiri Mahasaya on Patanjali Yoga Sutras in the Light of Kriya. All living beings are subject to the law of cause and effect. As a result oftheir past actions, they suffer again and again without breaking the cycle of birthsand deaths. Desires cause them to embody and reembody in the world. Once in embodiment, the individual seeks happiness and avoids pain andsorrow. Pleasure and/or pain is reaped in this life according to past good and badactions. Moreover, in order to be happy in this world, one should also suffer becausehappiness and suffering are relative. There is no escape from suffering until alldesires themselves are dissolved, or transcended. Perfect Happiness can only be found in Peace, or Shanti. How can one find Peace? There is no other means for finding Peace except through the practice ofYoga. By the practice of Yoga, the tremendously restless heart becomes calm. Notonly does the heart become calm by Yoga practice, but longevity is also increased.The body becomes healthy, and absolute Knowledge is gained. Who can tell how long a man will remain alive? It is well known that even ordinary people, without mentioning Yogis, canlive up to one-hundred to one-hundred-fifty years. It is also admitted that, startingwith the body in the mother’s womb up to the age of eighty, individuals are facedwith premature death. What is the cause of premature death? How can one prevent it? Who is also lucky not to be afflicted with hereditary ill-health or prematuredeath? Individuals themselves are the cause of their own death. It will become clearwhen one analyzes the nature of his restless activities and desires in search ofHappiness. What could be more desirable than to enjoy Peace with a steadfast heart? It In not so easy to remain steadfastly calm no matter what happens in life.But why in this not possible? Where is one's command over the mind? One shall have to tactically acquire dominion over the mind. That can onlybe accomplished by Yoga practice. It is possible to live even when all physical and mental activities have cometo a stop when one practices Yoga. Yoga is one of the six systems of philosophy. Yogi Patanjali is the founderof this system as well as the author of the many commentaries on Yogi Panini (thefather of Sanskrit grammar). This very valuable, tiny book is divided into four parts: In the first part, it describes the nature of Yoga, Samadhi, or "Attunement"with the ultimate Self and discusses its various aspects.In the second part, the first five steps of the eightfold Yoga path are outlinedfor the benefit of the truth seeker.In the third part, the last three steps are outlined, namely, Dharana ("concept of Tranquility"), Dhyana ("meditation") and Samadhi ("Attunement"). The state of going within during meditation practice and the danger of developing yogic powers on discussed.In fourth part, Kaivalya, or "the highest Liberation", is discussed.In fact, discussion of Yoga is the aim of this book.

Book Description :

“A wonderful translation, full of contemporary insight yet luminous with eternal truth.”—Jacob Needleman The Yoga Sutras were cast in their present form in India around the third century b.c. Yoga is from the Sanskrit root meaning “union,” and a sutra is a thread or aphoristic verse. The basic questions “Who am I?” “Where am I going?” “What is the purpose of life?” are asked by each new generation, and Patanjali’s answers form one of the oldest and most vibrant spiritual texts in the world. He explains what yoga is, how it works, and exactly how to purify the mind and let it settle into absolute stillness. This stillness is our own Self. It is the indispensable ground for Enlightenment, which is the ultimate goal of all our aspirations. Alistair Shearer’s lucid introduction and superb translation, fully preserving Patanjali’s jewel-like style, bring these ancient but vital teachings to those who seek the path of self-knowledge today. Bell Tower’s series, Sacred Teachings, offers essential spiritual classics from all traditions. May each book become a trusted companion on the way of truth, encouraging readers to study the wisdom of the ages and put it into practice each day.

Book Description :

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.

Book Description :

This is an English rendering of the classical text on yoga and meditations that maintains the poetic forms of the sutras. Patanjali is to Yoga what Buddha is to Buddhism. His sutras-scriptural narratives sometimes defined as literally "the path to transcendence"- are a darshan, or philosophical worldview and method to aid the awakening of self-realization. Patanjali reveals a set of landmarks that enable practitioners to lift the veils and study the hidden self, eventually following this path to enlightenment.

A concise and poetic rendering that conveys the essence and depth of this perennial classic of yoga. “This beautiful, poetic rendition of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras was gathered from Mukunda’s lifetime of abiding in the good company of the saints and sages of the Great Tradition. We can rely upon the fact that these words come from his own authentic experience of love and life and of Yoga. Please enjoy this gift of poetry from Mukunda and embrace the beauty of your life every day.” —Mark Whitwell, author of Yoga of Heart: The Healing Power of Intimate Connection Patanjali is to yoga what the Buddha is to Buddhism. His yoga sutras—literally “the path to transcendence”—are a means to profound self-realization and are considered the spiritual and philosophical root of the yoga tradition in its various forms. This concise, poetic rendering of the classic Yoga Sutra text conveys both the essence and depth of the yoga tradition. Mukunda Stiles had a lifelong devotion to the spiritual practice of yoga. Here, he shares Patanjali's essential work with precision and insight. He also includes a succinct line-for-line commentary, as well as word-by-word Sanskrit-to-English translation.

Book Description :

The Yoga Sutras were compiled about 2,000 years ago by the sage Patanjali from an oral tradition reaching back into unknowable antiquity. He gives us the essential wisdom for the practice of yoga and meditation to know, first hand, the essence of our true Self-the conscious indweller that enlivens this body. Experiencing the fully conscious state shows us the essential transcendent nature of the universe to bring us a state of undisturbed joyous tranquillity. Traditionally, this wisdom has been handed down from master to student as a transmission of the means to liberation. Patanjali tells us that the pure blissful inner Self is already attained and all that is required is to lose interest in that which is not the Self. This is pretty straight forward, and we learn all we need to know in the first three sutras. Presuming we will not get it the first time, he goes on to detail the nature of the Self, the practices that will awaken us, the attainments that arise from the practices and then explains about the state of final liberation. Throughout the book we are reminded of two fundamental practices that lead to the final state, kaivalya. One practice is vairagya (dispassion, non-attachment) and the other is viveka (discrimination). In the practice of viveka, we learn to discriminate between the mind and the watcher of the mind (consciousness itself). When we can rest in the state of consciousness knowing itself; we answer the question, "Who am I?" Also available from this author: The Inner Yoga of Happiness

Book Description :

Composed over two millenniums ago, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali remains the philosophical thread that unites the ancient and current world of yoga. Yet, its many translations are underwhelming, lacking connection to reality and practicality. Innumerable forms and sects of yoga have come and gone in between. Obsessed with gaining special powers over mind and body, yoga’s re-tellers have clouded its history in a mystical mist of fantastic claims. It is human nature to crave powers to radically change our lot in life. These layers of dazzle and glitter have over the centuries led us further away from yoga’s spiritual core. The sutras’ clear, logical, and practical path has been blurred and lost. Radically breaking with this mystical tradition, A. K. Aruna seeks to reclaim for us this fountainhead of yoga by retying the understanding of these sutras to the even more ancient source of spiritual knowledge and yoga—the Upanishads. The Upanishads eschewed limited pursuits in order to seek an ultimate goal that was not time-bound. In this still pure form of the yoga of seeking ultimate, timeless truth, the words of Patanjali become crystal clear and practical. Yoga shines in timeless relevance. A. K. Aruna’s Patanjali Yoga Sutras: A Translation in the Light of Vedanta Scripture has brilliantly refocused the light on the Yoga Sutras. This is a companion, translation only, booklet to the Translation and Commentary version of the text by A. K. Aruna.

Book Description :

Vedic literature, the ancient spiritual treasure of India, is an invaluable gift to us today. The most important questions of human existence and the final answers are discussed and revealed on its pages. Those who are seeking perfection often wonder what right way to choose in order to achieve the state of perfect bliss and freedom. They are yearning for the freedom that is not restrained by time or space, or in other words, by the limits of the material world. Freedom and happiness are the two genuine qualities of the original state of the soul, and by achieving liberation, it is possible to experience this original state once more. Liberation, the first stage of our spiritual existence, can be attained by the process of self-realization, and this is called yoga. The author of this volume, Gaura Kṛṣṇa Dāsa (László Tóth-Soma), who is a professor at the Bhaktivedanta College of Budapest, translated Patañjali’s Yoga-sūtras from the original Sanskrit text in a very authentic way. His commentaries contain theoretical and philosophical teachings on yoga, as well as various instructions for those practicing yogis who have already stepped on the path of self-realization. His in-depth knowledge and an over two-decade-long practice make his work a reliable help for those who would like to know their real self and their relation to the final source of all. The present volume elaborates on the first part of Patañjali’s Yoga-sūtras, the so-called Samādhi-pāda. The following three parts will soon be available.
