Description

Some of yoga’s most important writings, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras have remained relevant for 2,300 years because of their wisdom and inspiration. In the Yoga Sutras, Patanjali prescribes adherence to eight "limbs" or steps to quiet the mind and achieve the sacred state of kaivalya. Spread throughout are Patanjali’s 196 aphorisms, found in each of the book''s four chapters: “Samadhi Pada” (blissful state where the yogi is absorbed into the One), “Sadhana Pada” (practice or discipline), “Vibhuti Pada” (power or manifestation), and “Kaivalya Pada” (liberation). In The Wisdom of Patanjali''s Yoga Sutras, noted scholar and longtime practitioner Ravi Ravindra offers a fresh, direct translation of Patanjali’s text. Ravindra’s enriching, extensive commentary and his spiritual exercises make this book an integral part of daily practice.

The Wisdom of Patanjali''s Yoga Sutras: A New Translation and Guide by Ravi Ravindra is yet another exposition on Patanjali''s yoga sutras and one that merits not only being reread but reread more than once. I absolutely was blown away by the scholarship of Ravindra who draws on his own broad ranging spiritual knowledge, sprinkling his book with quotes from a variety of spiritual paths including Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism.

However, this is not light reading. In fact, as I was reading it I experienced familiar ache, that wish that I were reading and studying along with another so we could discuss the content. There is such a wealth of information in this book that I know most of it completely escaped my comprehension. This is why I say that this book is one that must be read and reread.

Nevertheless, there is enough accessible truth here that someone who is ready to go deeper in the philosophy of yoga can still walk away with something and someone who well-versed in yogic thought will learn something interesting as well. The content is challenging in the way that spiritual truth should be challenging, inviting the "listener" to grow into the truth rather than sit idly.

Read through once, this book is an invitation for more and read only once I can''t imagine any open minded reader wouldn''t be moved to change. Read more than once, no doubt the effects of what Ravindra shares would ripple endlessly, carrying the reader further and further each and every time. It is not often I come across a book with this much potency and I''ll eagerly read anything else Ravi Ravindra has written.

This book is very deep
Reviewed in the United States on January 9, 2010
This book is very interesting and the philosophy holds through the ages but unless you have some background in yoga, where I have my experience, this would be Greek.
I wouldn''t recommend this for the adverage reader.

Here Now is a Review of Ravindra''s Book on the Yoga Sutras
Reviewed in the United States on March 16, 2009
Having thoroughly enjoyed Ravindra''s book on the Gospel of John, I was really looking forward to reading his book on the Yoga Sutras. It is wonderful! Many thanks from a Hindu who was not fortunate enough to be born in India.

I am currently reading this book and recommended it very highly. Ravi Ravindra brings together his unique background - an academic well versed in religion as well as physics - to offer clear insights into the wisdom of Patanjali''s Yoga. After long I have come across such a remarkable book that addresses the spiritual and profound aspects of Yoga in such clear terms.
