In this much-anticipated volume, Orit Sen Gupta’s attentive translation serves the needs of students of wisdom and practitioners of yoga alike. Clear, precise and insightful, it offers three distinct arrangements of the text, allowing an engagement with it as written philosophical treatise, and in its original spirit as sutra – composed for chanting and heartful inquiry. Part One sets out each sutra in the original Devanagari script, followed by a Sanskrit transliteration, and then by a careful English translation, as close as possible to the original. Each word here is translated separately to encourage students to have their own direct encounter with Patanjali’s philosophy and expression. In addition, a lexicon of main terms is provided to assist students in building their working knowledge of Sanskrit yogic vocabulary. Part Two is a bilingual arrangement of the sutras on facing pages. Arranged for fluent reading and immediate clarity, it is ideal as an accompaniment to chanting practice – inviting contemporary yogis to experience the integrated understanding that can come with ‘learning by heart’ and the rhythm of Patanjali’s renowned genius. Finally, Part Three provides a full version of the sutras in unbroken Devanagari script – for established or aspiring readers of Sanskrit. Innovatively arranged and meticulously prepared, this translation will prove a delight to dedicated yogis everywhere, proving as essential for integrated practice as a mat and a sitting cushion.
