Yoga : discipline of freedom : the Yoga Sutra attributed to Patanjali ; a translation of the text, with commentary, introduction, and glossary of keywords by Patañjali( Book )

503 editions published between 1883 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 4,291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Yoga Sutra, dating from about the third century A.D., distills the essentials of a complex system of physical and spiritual discipline into 200 brief aphorisms. It does not propose to offer new knowledge, but rather a new perspective on the nature of knowing. As a method of achieving insight, the discipline of yoga is far from mystical ecstasy or ritual trance. Its goal is a contemplative intensity that can unbind the constraints of everyday experience, and that goal helps explain Americans' growing interest in yoga in recent years. This interest has been most widely expressed in the physical dimension of yoga--the postures known as hatha-yoga--but attention is increasingly being directed at the philosophy and psychology that define the discipline. This centuries-old text offers powerful techniques for countering private mental chaos and moral confusion.--From publisher description

"With its promise of personal improvement, physical well-being and spiritual enrichment, yoga is enjoying a resurgence in popularity at the turn of the third millennium. To unravel the mystery of the discipline, its philosophies and relevance in contemporary life, the original text of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali must be explored. This book offers the first accessible translation and commentary on Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. An introductory section examines the multidimensional aspects of yoga as philosophy, psychology, science, and religion, as well as exploring popular versions of yoga in the West. The core of the book offers a new translation of the entire text of the Yoga Sutras, in a language that is clear and comprehensible to students. Commentaries are presented to highlight the meaning of various statements (sutras) and key themes are outlined via sectional summaries. A full glossary of key words and names is also provided. Concluding chapters look at yoga in contemporary life, revealing the popularity of yoga in the 21st century through Star Wars, and exploring yoga's connection to health and science, contrasting yoga's holistic view of healing with that of the limited view of present day medical science. Sample physical, breathing and meditation exercises are provided. An Introduction to Yoga Philosophy offers a comprehensive introduction to the Yoga Sutras text of Patanjali to all students and interested readers of Indian philosophy and religion, world religions, east-west psychology, and mysticism."--Provided by publisher

Diese klassischen Lehrsprüche bilden die geistige Grundlage aller Yogasysteme. Sie stammen aus Überlieferungen, die wahrscheinlich im 2. Jahrhundert v. Chr. von Patañjali aufgezeichnet wurden. Die Vielfalt der Schulen und Richtungen, die sich im Laufe der Jahrhunderte entwickelt haben, geht auf diese älteste Quelle zurück. Die 195 prägnanten Sentenzen weisen den>>königlichen Weg<<zur vollkommenen inneren Befreiung durch rechte Erkenntnis. Er führt schrittweise, ohne Askese und gewaltsame Unterdrückung der Denkvorgänge, zum Verständnis der Wirklichkeit. Im Yoga leben heißt, unmittelbar, von Augenblick zu Augenblick, ohne hemmende Bindung an die Vergangenheit, ohne eingeschliffene Gewohnheiten oder eine überkommene Weltanschauung leben. P.Y. Deshpande, ein bekannter Schriftsteller und Publizist, hat sich über vierzig Jahre lang in Theorie und Praxis mit Yoga beschäftigt. Seine Einsichten, die Früchte dieser langjährigen Erfahrung, bilden zusammen mit den von Bettina Bäumer aus dem Sanskrit übertragenen Sutren ein unentbehrliches Standardwerk auf dem Gebiet des Yoga

"A commentary and interpretation of Pāṇini's grammar, has itself been commented upon abundantly in the past and is studied in traditional Sanskrit schools to this day. This text, along with its older written commentaries and its modern oral commentaries, constitutes an important document of Indian intellectual culture. The text is translated here in French along with the Pradīpa of Kaiyaṭa (prior to 1150 A.D.), a commentary that is based on that of Bhartṛhari, and the Uddyota of Nāgeśa (18th cent. A.D.), a commentary on the the Pradīpa of Kaiyaṭa. The Uddyota was very innovative and signaled the beginning of the modern age of Indian grammar. The book does not contain the original Sanskrit texts"--Publisher's web site
