A landmark new translation and edition Written almost two millennia ago, Patañjali's work focuses on how to attain the direct experience and realization of the purusa: the innermost individual self, or soul. As the classical treatise on the Hindu understanding of mind and consciousness and on the technique of meditation, it has exerted immense influence over the religious practices of Hinduism in India and, more recently, in the West. Edwin F. Bryant's translation is clear, direct, and exact. Each sutra is presented as Sanskrit text, transliteration, and precise English translation, and is followed by Bryant's authoritative commentary, which is grounded in the classical understanding of yoga and conveys the meaning and depth of the sutras in a user-friendly manner for a Western readership without compromising scholarly rigor or traditional authenticity. In addition, Bryant presents insights drawn from the primary traditional commentaries on the sutras written over the last millennium and a half.

Im Yoga vereinigen sich innere Ruhe und Ausgeglichenheit mit einem starken, flexiblen Körper. Die Positionen oder Asanas kräftigen die Muskeln, entspannen den Geist und stärken die Konzentrationsfähigkeit. Aber was genau passiert eigentlich bei den verschiedenen Übungen im Körper? Der anerkannte Yoga-Experte Leslie Kaminoff hat in seinem Klassiker Yoga-Anatomie erstmals zusammengefasst, auf welche Organe, Muskelgruppen und Gelenke sich die einzelnen Asanas auswirken, wie sie das tun und wann welche Atemtechniken einzusetzen sind. Nun hat er den Bestseller komplett überarbeitet und mit zwei zusätzlichen Kapiteln zum Skelett- und Muskelsystem erweitert. Die wichtigsten Übungen und ihre Wirkungen werden auch in dieser Ausgabe durch exakte Illustrationen so detailgenau beschrieben, wie es anhand von Fotos nie möglich wäre. Mit diesem Buch erhält der Leser ein ganz neues Verständnis über die positive Wirkung von Yoga.

In just 196 short aphorisms, this classic work of Indian philosophy spells out succinctly how the mind works, and how it is possible to use the mind to attain liberation. Compiled in the second or third century CE, the Yoga-Sutra is a road map of human consciousness—and a particularly helpful guide to the mind states one encounters in meditation, yoga, and other spiritual practices. It expresses the truths of the human condition with great eloquence: how we know what we know, why we suffer, and how we can discover the way out of suffering. Chip Hartranft's fresh translation and extensive, lucid commentary bring the text beautifully to life. He also provides useful auxiliary materials, including an afterword on the legacy of the Yoga-Sutra and its relevance for us today.

Der wichtigste Grundlagentext spiritueller Weisheit Die knapp 200 Verse des Yogasutra von Patanjali beschreiben in unvergleichlicher Dichte, Logik und Präzision den Entwicklungsweg unseres Bewusstseins, den man Yoga nennt. Dabei meint Yoga Weg und Ziel zugleich: als Ziel steht es für den Zustand der Selbstverwirklichung oder Erleuchtung, als Weg bezeichnet es die vielfältigen Methoden, die dorthin führen. In vier Kapiteln erfahren wir, wie wir innere Freiheit erlangen, wie unsere tägliche, spirituelle Praxis aussehen kann, welche inneren Übungen – Konzentration und Meditation – die Transformation unseres Bewusstseins bewirken und wie wir schließlich lernen, all das wieder lozulassen, um wirklich frei zu werden. Undogmatisch und ohne moralisch-religiöse Vorschriften zeigt uns das Yogasutra den Weg zur Befreiung von den Fesseln des Ego-Bewusstseins.

Patañjali's Yogasutra is an ancient canonic Indian text composed in Sanskrit in the 3rd or 4th century. Belonging to a very different cultural milieu, this multi-layered text is philosophical, psychological and practical in nature. Offering a philosophical reading of Patañjali's Yogasutra, this book discusses themes such as freedom, self-identity, time and transcendence, and translation - between languages, cultures and eras. Drawing substantially upon contemporary Indian materials, it discusses for the first time classical yoga as reflected upon by Daya Krishna (1924-2007) with constant reference to Krishna Chandra Bhattacharyya's (1875-1949) studies in yoga philosophy. The genuine attempt on behalf of these two original thinkers to engage philosophically with Patañjala-yoga sets the tone of the textual exploration provided here. This book features a new annotated translation of the Yogasutra, and the author provides a useful background to the extensive Samkhya terminology employed by Patañjali. Daniel Raveh also offers a close reflection of the very act of translation, and the book concludes with suggestions for further reading and a glossary of central notions.

This book presents a close reading of four Indian narratives from different time periods (epic, Upaniṣadic, pre-modern and contemporary): Ekalavya's story from the Mahābhārata (MBh 1.123.1-39), the story of Prajāpati, Indra and Virocana from the Chāndogya Upaniṣad (CU 8.7.1-8.12.5), the story of Śaṅkara in the King's body from the Śaṅkaradigvijaya, and A.R. Murugadoss's Hindi film Ghajini (2008), respectively. These stories are thematically juxtaposed with Pātañjala-yoga, namely Patañjali's Yogasūtra and its vast commentarial body. The sūtras reveal hidden philosophical layers. The stories, on the other hand, contribute to the clarification of "philosophical junctions" in the Yogasūtra.Through sūtras and stories, the author explores the question of self-identity, with emphasis on the role of memory and the place of body in identity-formation. Each of the stories diagnoses the connection between self-identity and (at least a sense of) freedom. Employing cutting-edge methodology, crossing the boundaries of literary theory, story-telling, and philosophical reflection, this book presents fresh interpretations of Indian thought. It is useful to specialists in Asian philosophy and culture.

This collection of essays presents the reader with a fine overview and detailed discussion on the impact of interreligious studies and intercultural theology on methods and methodologies. New fields of study require new methods and methodologies, and, although these two new fields draw from a host of existing other disciplines and areas of thought and are almost transdisciplinary in nature, they nonetheless influence existing methodologies and help them evolve in new directions.

Threads of Yoga is a “remix” of Patanjali’s yoga sutras, pieced together from a dozen other translations, classical commentaries and reflections from 15 years of personal practice. It presents this ancient text in a revitalized form, as if Patanjali’s vast acumen for consciousness studies had benefited from the discoveries of modernity and postmodernity. It’s a project I began with my friend and colleague Scott Petrie. In the text and commentaries, I blend philosophy, psychotherapy, literary theory, anthropology and aesthetics. I am specifically indebted to the literature and practice of psychoanalysis for my thoughts around the child-developmental and psycho-evolutionary stages displayed in classical yogic thought. I have given the textuality of my remix a fluid mood, presenting it in prose form, in sentence form with contemporary poetic line-breaks, in its conventional mode of one aphorism per line, as well as aphorism-plus-commentary interlaced. My intention is that this visual flexibility helps to hint at the oral and performative quality of the aphorisms, and to loosen the feelings of calcification that often accrue to ‘important books’ . My thought is that if this book is as visually variegated as the oral tradition is variegated in accent, tone, projection, aural ambience, digression, and anecdote, perhaps it can actually begin to do what it describes: disrupt conscious patterning with moments of perceptual wonderment and unexpected integration. Interlaced amongst Patanjali’s reveries are my own, in the spirit of encouraging others to dream in the language of yoga philosophy as well.
