✏The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali Book Summary : In just 196 short aphorisms, this classic work of Indian philosophy spells out succinctly how the mind works, and how it is possible to use the mind to attain liberation. Compiled in the second or third century CE, the Yoga-Sutra is a road map of human consciousness—and a particularly helpful guide to the mind states one encounters in meditation, yoga, and other spiritual practices. It expresses the truths of the human condition with great eloquence: how we know what we know, why we suffer, and how we can discover the way out of suffering. Chip Hartranft's fresh translation and extensive, lucid commentary bring the text beautifully to life. He also provides useful auxiliary materials, including an afterword on the legacy of the Yoga-Sutra and its relevance for us today.

✏Patanjali Yoga Sutras Book Summary : Composed over two millenniums ago, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali remains the philosophical thread that unites the ancient and current world of yoga. Yet, its many translations are underwhelming, lacking connection to reality and practicality. Innumerable forms and sects of yoga have come and gone in between. Obsessed with gaining special powers over mind and body, yoga’s re-tellers have clouded its history in a mystical mist of fantastic claims. It is human nature to crave powers to radically change our lot in life. These layers of dazzle and glitter have over the centuries led us further away from yoga’s spiritual core. The sutras’ clear, logical, and practical path has been blurred and lost. Radically breaking with this mystical tradition, A. K. Aruna seeks to reclaim for us this fountainhead of yoga by retying the understanding of these sutras to the even more ancient source of spiritual knowledge and yoga—the Upanishads. The Upanishads eschewed limited pursuits in order to seek an ultimate goal that was not time-bound. In this still pure form of the yoga of seeking ultimate, timeless truth, the words of Patanjali become crystal clear and practical. Yoga shines in timeless relevance. A. K. Aruna’s Patanjali Yoga Sutras: A Translation in the Light of Vedanta Scripture has brilliantly refocused the light on the Yoga Sutras. This is a companion, translation only, booklet to the Translation and Commentary version of the text by A. K. Aruna.

✏Patanjali Yoga Sutras Book Summary : This is a scriptural commentary of Lahiri Mahasaya on Patanjali Yoga Sutras in the Light of Kriya. All living beings are subject to the law of cause and effect. As a result oftheir past actions, they suffer again and again without breaking the cycle of birthsand deaths. Desires cause them to embody and reembody in the world. Once in embodiment, the individual seeks happiness and avoids pain andsorrow. Pleasure and/or pain is reaped in this life according to past good and badactions. Moreover, in order to be happy in this world, one should also suffer becausehappiness and suffering are relative. There is no escape from suffering until alldesires themselves are dissolved, or transcended. Perfect Happiness can only be found in Peace, or Shanti. How can one find Peace? There is no other means for finding Peace except through the practice ofYoga. By the practice of Yoga, the tremendously restless heart becomes calm. Notonly does the heart become calm by Yoga practice, but longevity is also increased.The body becomes healthy, and absolute Knowledge is gained. Who can tell how long a man will remain alive? It is well known that even ordinary people, without mentioning Yogis, canlive up to one-hundred to one-hundred-fifty years. It is also admitted that, startingwith the body in the mother’s womb up to the age of eighty, individuals are facedwith premature death. What is the cause of premature death? How can one prevent it? Who is also lucky not to be afflicted with hereditary ill-health or prematuredeath? Individuals themselves are the cause of their own death. It will become clearwhen one analyzes the nature of his restless activities and desires in search ofHappiness. What could be more desirable than to enjoy Peace with a steadfast heart? It In not so easy to remain steadfastly calm no matter what happens in life.But why in this not possible? Where is one's command over the mind? One shall have to tactically acquire dominion over the mind. That can onlybe accomplished by Yoga practice. It is possible to live even when all physical and mental activities have cometo a stop when one practices Yoga. Yoga is one of the six systems of philosophy. Yogi Patanjali is the founderof this system as well as the author of the many commentaries on Yogi Panini (thefather of Sanskrit grammar). This very valuable, tiny book is divided into four parts: In the first part, it describes the nature of Yoga, Samadhi, or "Attunement"with the ultimate Self and discusses its various aspects.In the second part, the first five steps of the eightfold Yoga path are outlinedfor the benefit of the truth seeker.In the third part, the last three steps are outlined, namely, Dharana ("concept of Tranquility"), Dhyana ("meditation") and Samadhi ("Attunement"). The state of going within during meditation practice and the danger of developing yogic powers on discussed.In fourth part, Kaivalya, or "the highest Liberation", is discussed.In fact, discussion of Yoga is the aim of this book.

✏Yoga Karma and Rebirth Book Summary : For serious yoga practitioners curious to know the ancient origins of the art, Stephen Phillips, a professional philosopher and sanskritist with a long-standing personal practice, lays out the philosophies of action, knowledge, and devotion as well as the processes of meditation, reasoning, and self-analysis that formed the basis of yoga in ancient and classical India and continue to shape it today. In discussing yoga's fundamental commitments, Phillips explores traditional teachings of hatha yoga, karma yoga, bhakti yoga, and tantra, and shows how such core concepts as self-monitoring consciousness, karma, nonharmfulness (ahimsa), reincarnation, and the powers of consciousness relate to modern practice. He outlines values implicit in bhakti yoga and the tantric yoga of beauty and art and explains the occult psychologies of koshas, skandhas, and chakras. His book incorporates original translations from the early Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita, the Yoga Sutra (the entire text), the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, and seminal tantric writings of the tenth-century Kashmiri Shaivite, Abhinava Gupta. A glossary defining more than three hundred technical terms and an extensive bibliography offer further help to nonscholars. A remarkable exploration of yoga's conceptual legacy, Yoga, Karma, and Rebirth crystallizes ideas about self and reality that unite the many incarnations of yoga.
