The Yoga Sutras of Maharshi Patanjali are an elegant description of the expansion of consciousness and the psychological, emotional, and physical transformations involved. Many commentators have mistaken the sutras for steps to enlightenment, believing it necessary to renounce normal life and force the mind into silence. Nothing could be further from the truth. This translation and commentary corrects this unfortunate distortion, clearly revealing the power of the sutras to illuminate the nature of the Self and brings to light the true purpose and meaning of Patanjali’s words. The Yoga Sutras do not contain the actual techniques to achieve enlightenment, but do describe what happens when proper tools are correctly applied. The techniques themselves have always been passed on through personal instruction, one enlivened heart to another.

From the Back Cover:

The Yoga Sutras of Maharishi Pantanjali are the most concise formulation in history of the mechanics of the growth of consciousness. They are a systematic and complete understanding of the psychological, emotional and physical transformations that occur as an individual develops full enlightenment. His text of yoga was designed to help anyone rise to this state of human perfection, and this process of development is called Ascension, or rising beyond the boundaries of ignorance.|This new translation and commentary gives a fresh and original perspective on the most concise formula to the growth of consciousness -- The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. MSI reveals that the Science of Yoga begins and ends in the present moment. He describes the physical, emotional and psychological transformations that coincide with expansion of consciousness. There is no problem-mental, emotional, physical, or societal that can withstand the wholly beneficail power of the Infinite Mind.

From the Inside Flap:

Yoga is the science of joining together the individual lower self with the universal higher Self. Yoga is not a belief system or religion nor even a philosophy; it is an extremely practical methodology for systematically expanding the conscious mind.
