The Yoga Sutras
By Patanjali

Editor's Introduction


THIS BOOK is the oldest known instruction manual on yoga. Its title means "Short Statements About Yoga." It describes a system known variously as Classical Yoga, Patanjali Yoga, Ashtanga (Eight-limbed) Yoga, and Raja Yoga.

The translation we present here has been pieced together with some editorial changes from several previous versions. In drawing on a multiplicity of sources, we have taken care not to introduce any inconsistencies in terminology. We have probably relied most heavily on the excellent translation by Samkhya-Yogacharya Swami Hariharananda Aranya which was published by Calcutta University Press. There are many other excellent English translations in print including those by Georg Feuerstein and Swami Vivekananda.
