  • Description

    Light On Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali is an interpretation and elucidation of Patanjali’s yoga sutras, written by B. K. S. Iyengar, on the practical and philosophical aspects of this form of Raja yoga.

    Summary Of The Book

    In Light On Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali, author B. K. S. Iyengar elaborates on a yoga philosophy, which was described by Patanjali in his yoga sutras over 2,000 years ago.

    The original Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali consists of 196 sutras and forms the foundation of Raja yoga, which is considered as the highest form of yoga practice. These Sutras are considered to be the most profound study on the human psyche. To be able to practice this form of yoga, Patanjali ascribed an adherence to eight steps in order to silence the mind and achieve enlightenment. In Iyengar’s interpretation, the goal of a yogic is to combine the body, mind, emotions, and soul through various yoga postures and proper breathing techniques.

    Iyengar also stressed on the importance of the flow of energy and consciousness of the mind, which will occur once the posture and breathing are aligned. After reading his book, readers will soon discover that the division between the mind and body is simply illusory. By practising the yoga sutras and learning to control their breathing, individuals will open up a spiritual doorway of transformation. Behind each sutra, readers will also learn about the philosophy behind each technique. Iyengar’s goal in writing Light On Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali is to help individuals rid themselves of destructive emotions, which in turn give rise to destructive thoughts and actions. Iyengar also provides a personal perspective by including examples from his own life in order to illustrate the benefits of this yoga.

    This edition of Light On Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali was published in 2010 by HarperCollins India Pvt. Ltd.

    Simplified in an excellent way, and true to the original meaning, Patanjali's Yoga Sutras

    The translation from Sanskrit, with the words broken down, makes it easier to enunciate the sutras. The individual meaning of every sanskrit word has been given, and finally the entire Sutra simplified and explained in easy to understand language.
    This is by far the best translation and extrapolation ever!

    Light on Yoga books is different frm this book given

    The book that says Light on Yoga Sutra of Patanjali by BKS Iyengar DOES NOT have ASANAS or any Photographs whatsoever. It is purely a spiritual writeup on the Sutras. The Asanas are in another book by BKS just called "Light on Yoga". So, do not get confused as many of the reviews for this book are wrong. I wanted to know the asanas but did not find any although the explanation on the sutra side is good.
