Nicholas Sutton con The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali: The Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies Guide (English Edition)
A new translation and study guide.
Hindu religious thought recognises yoga as one of the six darśanas, or philosophical systems and Patañjali’s Yoga Sūtras holds the position of being the seminal work that defines the system. Even today, when Yoga has progressed considerably from the teachings of Patañjali, it is still usually referred to as the principal work on Yoga with authoritative status.
Over the centuries many important commentaries have been written that seek to explain and extrapolate the full meaning of the sūtras.
Dr Sutton has given us an accessible translation and commentary without sacrificing any of its profound wisdom.
