Light On Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali is an interpretation and elucidation of Patanjali s yoga sutras, written by B. K. S. Iyengar, on the practical and philosophical aspects of this form of Raja yoga.

In Light On Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali, author B. K. S. Iyengar elaborates on a yoga philosophy, which was described by Patanjali in his yoga sutras over 2,000 years ago.

The original Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali consists of 196 sutras and forms the foundation of Raja yoga, which is considered as the highest form of yoga practice. These Sutras are considered to be the most profound study on the human psyche. To be able to practice this form of yoga, Patanjali ascribed an adherence to eight steps in order to silence the mind and achieve enlightenment. In Iyengar s interpretation, the goal of a yogic is to combine the body, mind, emotions, and soul through various yoga postures and proper breathing techniques.

Iyengar also stressed on the importance of the flow of energy and consciousness of the mind, which will occur once the posture and breathing are aligned. After reading his book, readers will soon discover that the division between the mind and body is simply illusory. By practising the yoga sutras and learning to control their breathing, individuals will open up a spiritual doorway of transformation. Behind each sutra, readers will also learn about the philosophy behind each technique. Iyengar s goal in writing Light On Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali is to help individuals rid themselves of destructive emotions, which in turn give rise to destructive thoughts and actions. Iyengar also provides a personal perspective by including examples from his own life in order to illustrate the benefits of this yoga.

This edition of Light On Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali was published in 2010 by HarperCollins India Pvt. Ltd.

From the Publisher:
A fresh translation of the writings of Patanjali, the first man to record the ancient practice of yoga, by B. K. S. Iyengar, the man who introduced yoga to the West.
From the Back Cover:

Patanjali wrote this collection of yoga wisdom over 2,000 years ago. They are amongst the world’s most revered and ancient teachings and are the earliest, most holy yoga reference.

The Sutras are short and to the point – each being only a line or two long. BKS Iyengar has translated each one, and provided his own insightful commentary and explanation for modern readers.

The Sutras show the reader how we can transform ourselves through the practice of yoga, gradually developing the mind, body and emotions, so we can become spiritually evolved.

The Sutras are also a wonderful introduction to the spiritual philosophy that is the foundation of yoga practise.

The book is thoroughly cross-referenced, and indexed, resulting in an accessible and helpful book that is of immense value both to students of Indian philosophy and practitioners of yoga.
