Yoga Sutras of Patanjali as interpreted by Mukunda Stiles
A devotional approach to the definitive text on Classical Yoga, rendered in poetic phrases.
"A sustained reading of the Sutras, integrated with the practices described in the text, can thus yield a roadmap to your Self." -- Yoga Sutras of Patanjali Mukunda spent 30 years contemplating the sutras before publishing his personal "bhakti" rendition of this text. The rendition leaves space for the reader to contemplate and to allow personal insights to arise.
Mukunda received a personal blessing of Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar for his rendition of the Sutras.
Excerpt of the Introduction of the book: The word sutra derives from its two component parts. Su means, literally "thread or string," implying the weaving together of various views from a fundamental thought. Tra means "to transcend." Sutra thus implies the weaving of thoughts into a sequence that produces transcendental insights in your personal practice.
