The yoga sutra-s are considered the most authoritative of yoga texts. Authored by Patanjali, this work presents all the concepts of yoga in 195 aphorisms. Such is the respect given to this work that all great yogi-s acknowledged this work when they presented their own teaching. There is a popular saying that “what is not mentioned in the yoga sutra-s is either not yoga, or probably not important at all”.
An understanding of the yoga sutra-s is necessary for any serious student of yoga. To help the many yoga enthusiasts of the modern world, we would like to share the teachings of the yoga sutra through this section. In this section we offer one sutra every week (updated every Saturday), with its translation by TKV Deskachar. The section will also feature an audio recital of the yoga sutra by Mekhala Desikachar.
Yoga Sutra of Patanjali is available as Mobile App
