A short yet insightful and accurate translation and explanation of the classic Yoga Sutra attributed to Patanjali.

The Yoga Sutras is an ancient Indian text attributed to the sage Patanjali. Yoga Discipline of Freedom is a great book to learn about the Yoga Sutras. It is easy to read and understand. They discuss "yoga" in the deep spiritual sense- not the physical exercises of Hatha Yoga, but the essential techniques of stilling the mind and achieving spiritual illumination. The objective, almost scientific, treatment of Yoga Sutras presents the reader with an anatomy of consciousness itself, as well as an atlas of the highest human possibilities.

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.

We don’t have that much information about the actual Patanjali. Patanjali’s Yoga is referred to in some ancient texts as Samkhya with Ishvara. Like many Sanskrit terms in the Yoga Sutras, the word Ishvara can be interpreted in several ways. It could mean God or it could mean a master or expert teacher. In the Yogic system, dedication to Ishvara is one of the preconditions to liberation, while in Samkhya it is not.

Barbara Stoler Miller. The Yoga Sutra, dating from about the third century . distills the essentials of a complex system of physical and spiritual discipline into 200 brief aphorisms.

Dating from about the third century A.D., the Yoga Sutra distills the essence of the physical and spiritual discipline of yoga into fewer than two hundred brief aphorisms. It is the core text for any study of meditative practice, revered for centuries for its brilliant analysis of mental states and of the process by which inner liberation is achieved. Yet its difficulties are legendary, and until now, no translation has made it fully accessible. This new translation, hailed by Yoga Journal for its "unsurpassed readability," is by one of the leading Sanskrit scholars of our time, whose Bhagavad Gita has become a recognized classic. It includes an introduction to the philosophy and psychology underlying the Yoga Sutra, the full text with explanatory commentary, and a glossary of key terms in Sanskrit and English.

Really informative! I learned a lot about Yoga, and not the westernized physical version. This will teach you what Yoga really is and give you some real food for thought.

I thought I'd want this version which is much more condensed with different translations ... I prefer Iyengar's though.

Purchase of a book on the yoga sutras was required my for yoga teacher training.Other trainees in my class had different books on the yoga sutras, but everyone liked this book the best. Very straightforward, easy to read and understand

I got this book for a class I was taking. This book is very small and doesn't have much in it, but it is rather informative.

Fantastic read and quite scholarly. Recommended by a university professor.

This is a very condensed translation of the fundamental theological handbook for those who want to devote themselves to the austerities of the study of the details of the metaphysics of meditation on God (which transcend any particular religion). From the precision of the translation I can see that Dr. Barbara Miller had been studying this work for long time before she wrote this book. She has left out the details of the tranlations of the Sanskrit words. Of course, she would have had to a assume a fundmental knowledge of the Sanskrit language and its alphabet for this(Mr. Houston at the American Sanskrit Institute has published some very useful tapes and workbooks for this). Also, she leaves out translations of most of the very enlightening comments of the Hindu sage Vyasa (these are available in English in the book by Swami Hariharananda and also the book which she references in the Harvard Oriental series by Dr. Houghton Woods). Nevertheless, by giving us a concise translation of these important scriptures which are faithful to the original Sanskrit she has done good. Thank you Dr. Miller for your scholarly work in this area.
Tekasa
excellent translation but a little overly poetic.
I think this would be a wonderful starting point for anyone who is just starting to explore the Yoga Sutras. The writing is clear and concise. Without Sanskrit and organized for simplicity , this might be a good jumping off point for a beginner or just another point of view to add to an ever increasing number of commentaries on this age old wisdom tradition
