Product description

From the Inside Flap

Dating from about the third century A.D., the "Yoga Sutra distills the essence of the physical and spiritual discipline of yoga into fewer than two hundred brief aphorisms. It is the core text for any study of meditative practice, revered for centuries for its brilliant analysis of mental states and of the process by which inner liberation is achieved. Yet its difficulties are legendary, and until now, no translation has made it fully accessible.


This new translation, hailed by "Yoga Journal for its "unsurpassed readability," is by one of the leading Sanskrit scholars of our time, whose "Bhagavad Gita has become a recognized classic. It includes an introduction to the philosophy and psychology underlying the "Yoga Sutra, the full text with explanatory commentary, and a glossary of key terms in Sanskrit and English.

From the Back Cover

The Yoga Sutra, dating from about the third century A.D., distills the essentials of a complex system of physical and spiritual discipline into not quite two hundred brief aphorisms. Yoga is at the heart of all meditative practice in Asia, yet until now there has been no first-rate English version of this primary text. Barbara Stoler Miller's translation admirably fills that gap - her clear, strong style and sensitive phrasing convey every nuance of Patanjali's words, and her commentary offers invaluable guidance to anyone seeking to understand how yoga describes our relation to the world. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
