Smith, Professor of Sanskrit and Classical Indian Religions, University of Iowa; author of The Self-Possessed "This work is a masterful overview of the Yoga Stras and their meaning for us today.

The clarity of her writing makes this rich exposition of a very important subject delightfully accessible to the Western reader." - Adam Crabtree, PhD, author of Trance Zero and From Mesmer to Freud.
