This book was released on 2022-05-02T22:59:00Z with total page 29 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The word citta has been translated as mind in the West. In India, it is considered that mind not only has the power of conation or volition, but also of discrimination. But citta really means consciousness. #2 The first chapter of the Yoga Sutras is dedicated to the analysis of consciousness and its behavioral patterns. It explains how its fluctuations can be stilled in order to achieve inner absorption and integration. The second chapter reveals the whole linking mechanism of yoga, by means of which ethical conduct, bodily vigor, and health and physiological vitality are built into the structure of the human evolutionary progress towards freedom. #3 Yoga is the control of the movement of consciousness, which leads to their complete cessation. It is extremely difficult to convey the meaning of the word citta because it is the subtlest form of cosmic intelligence. #4 The practice of yoga integrates a person through the journey of intelligence and consciousness from the external to the internal. It unifies him from the intelligence of the skin to the intelligence of the self, so that his self merges with the cosmic Self.
Download PDF The Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali Book by Alistair Shearer Full eBook and published by Random House. This book was released on 2010-07-28 with total page 144 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The basic questions of Who Am I? Where Am I Going? What Is the Purpose of Life? are asked by every generation, and Patanjali's answers (given in the third century BC) form one of the oldest spiritual texts in the world. 'That which unites' is called 'Yoga' - and is thus much broader than the form of exercise so popular today. It is a way to restore our lost wholeness, our integrity as complete human beings, by unifying the personality around a centre that is silent and unbounded. Alistair Shearer's superb introduction and translation bring these ancient, vital teachings to life in the modern world and are for all those who seek the benefits of self-knowledge.

Book excerpt: 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.

Download PDF The Yoga-sūtras of Patañjali Book by Gaura Kṛṣṇa Dāsa Full eBook and published by Bhaktivedanta College Press. This book was released on 2019-04-17 with total page 286 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: 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.
Download PDF The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali Book by Full eBook and published by Watkins Media Limited. This book was released on 2012-01-01 with total page 244 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Providing an explanation of the practical and philosophical foundations of Raja Yoga, The Yoga Sūtras of Patañjali is arguably the most important text on Yogic philosophy. The Yoga Sūtras of Patañjali is widely regarded as the most authoritative text on yoga. It comprises a collection of 196 Indian sutras (“threads” – as sutra translates from Sanskrit) written 1,700 years ago. These threads or aphorisms were compiled by the Indian sage Patañjali and offer guidelines for living a meaningful and purposeful life. The book is organized into four parts and provides descriptions of the eight limbs of yoga, such as pranayama and asana. The translated text is presented alongside a clear and insightful commentary by Swami Vivekananda, which makes them more accessible to the modern reader and yoga practitioner. His message of universal brotherhood and self-awakening remains relevant today, especially in the current backdrop of widespread political turmoil around the world.
Download PDF Yoga Sutras of Patanjali Book by Swāmī Veda Bhāratī Full eBook and published by . This book was released on 2004-12-01 with total page 860 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: 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.
Download PDF Patanjali Yoga Sutras Book by A. K. Aruna Full eBook and published by . This book was released on 2012-04-02 with total page 472 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: 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.

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.
