Patanjali – Yoga Sutras in Lingo – The Liberation of Spirit in Modern Metaphors by Tai Sheridan




Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras teach restraint, wise action, and morality as a path. They were written between 100 BCE and 500 BE. In this ancient Hindu text, Patanjali espouses the eight limbs of yoga as a path of practice and realization of the divine. Sanskrit translations tend to be literal and perplexing. Most versions are augmented by instructional and interpretive commentaries along with complex philosophy. This book is written with one purpose: to be an immediate intimacy for the reader between the written word and their own experience.
