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 )

33 editions published between 1891 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 670 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
The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali by Patañjali( Book )

55 editions published between 1947 and 2015 in English and Sanskrit and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Yoga Sutras were cast in their present form in India around the third century B.C. Yoga is from the Sanskrit root meaning "union," and a sutra is a thread or aphoristic verse. The basic questions "Who am I?" "Where am I going?" "What is the purpose of life?" are asked by each new generation, and Patanjali's answers form one of the oldest and most vibrant spiritual texts in the world. He explains what yoga is, how it works, and exactly how to purify the mind and let it settle into absolute stillness. This stillness is our own Self. It is the indispensable ground for Enlightenment, which is the ultimate goal of all our aspirations." "Alistair Shearer's introduction and translation, fully preserving Patanjali's style, bring these ancient but vital teachings to those who seek the path of self-knowledge today."--Jacket

in French and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A commentary and interpretation of Pāṇini 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
