Excerpt from The Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali: With the Commentary of Bhoja Raja and an English Translation

It also quotes Badari, a teacher, and Bádarayana, probably a grandson of Badari, and author of the Vedanta Sútras or later Mimans'a, as also of a commentary on the Toga Sútra. The Vedanta in its turn refutes adverse doctrines of all the five, and thereby admits their pre-existence. This state of facts can be reconciled only by the supposition that the different dogmas and the schools which cherished them existed for a long time before the dogmas were written down in the aphoristic form in which we have them now. Oral transmission must have been the principal means of their preservation for a long time. There might have been also text-books before, but they were set aside by the very complete systems which the new texts produced, and in the new systems the refutation of adverse opinions very naturally included all the theories which were prevalent at the time when the books were compiled, and not the theories only of the time when the original dogmas were first promulgated. This is also obvious in other ways. In the case of the Sankhya Sútra, though it is usually attributed to Kapila, one of the mind-born sons of Brahmá, we find it refers to an "ancient teacher" (A'charya, A. V, 31), and to "venerable preceptors" (A. VI, 69). Sanandana and Panchas'ikha are cited by name (V, 32, and VI, 69). Kapila is then said to have taught his doctrine to A'surí, who is described both as a brother and a pupil of the teacher.

Excerpt from The Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali: With the Commentary of Bhoja Raja and an English Translation The cardinal difference between the two rests on their theistic and atheistic belief, but as already stated. It makes no difference in their systems. Isolation of soul from thinking principle is the end sought in either case, and meditation in Samadhi is the only means available. The believer in the existence of the God head assumes that divine grace facilitates the end sought, but he does not dispense with Samadhi, and his belief, therefore, is of no material importance.
