Revue de presse
've read a couple different texts on the commentary of the Yoga Sutras but this is the best yet. The book is comprehensive and easy to read. Each sutra is thoroughly discussed extensively. Swami Satyananda Saraswati's comments helped changed my perspective on my everyday outlook and each time I revisit the text I notice something I didn't recognize the time before. It's like the routine of driving to work and sitting at a red light on the way and one day noticing a tree that seems to appear out of nowhere; however, the tree is mature and permanent. It's clear the tree has been there since "forever", though I never saw it of all the times I've traveled down the familiar road. That's the familiar experience I'm talking about whenever I refer back to the text. This book is a treasure of knowledge and is essential for householders on the path. --Chandra
For beginners, this book is not about asana (postures)and there are very few verses about asana. If one looks for asana, then they should read the book Asana Pranayama Mudra Bandha. This book is for more serious people who are seeking to practice Raja Yoga and desiring enlightenment and self realization. This book talks about how to get into samadhi (Chapter 1: Samadhi Pada) Samadhi meaning higher level of concentrated meditation or dhyana; how to perform sadhana (chapter 2: sadhana pada)Sadhana is a way of discipline in pursuit of a goal; Chapter 3 is Vibhooti pada, which is advanced and discusses about Samyama (Samyama is achieved with the combination of samadhi, dharana (concentration) and sadhana) and final chapter is Kaivalya Pada. Kaivalya Pada is about siddhi (siddhi meaning performing accomplishment and attainment of moksha). Siddhi can also mean miracles and attainment of eternality on one's own. This book is a commentary not a translation work as written by some reviewers. Yoga Sutra was written by Patanjali more than 25 centuries ago. There were many great people such as Swami Vivekananda, Swami Satchithananda, other than Swami Satyananda Saraswati, had authored books on Yoga Sutras by Patanjali in recent century. How is this book different from other books? Author had implemented Patanjali Yoga Sutras in his life and in his disciples' lives and students lives and had seen the benefits out of them. His real life experience speaks through his commentary work. By reading this book, will one be able to practice advanced topics such as samadhi and samyama and siddhi on their own? My answer is NO. This book work provides an excellent theoretical knowledge and one has to seek a Master Guru, who follows Patanjali Yoga Sutra way of life, can guide and hand hold him/ her. In the western world, yoga is used more of a physical exercise and I have not come across any Western Guru who was able to guide me in Samyama, dharana and dhyana. I also found that there are not many Yoga Gurus, who can teach and guide in advanced topics such as samadhi and samyama. I know very few Gurus teach Samyama, one is Bihar School of Yoga's Trainer Swamijis and another is Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev. --Shankar Ganesh

This book is a treasure of knowledge and is essential for householders on the path.
Many years later that Yoga was about to disappear, until Patanjali took upon himself the task of gathering all te pieces together and reformulate it again, in a way as similar as possible to the original Samkhya Yoga.
He wrote his work down in the book called Yoga Sutras, which have become eversice the "manual" of yoga throughout the world.
The Yoga presented in the Yoga Sutras is called Raja Yoga (i.e., The King of the Yogas) or Ashtanga Yoga (i.e., The Yoga of The Eight Branches).
However valuable (it is indeed a masterpiece) is almost impossible to undesrtand, since the Sutras were practical manulas written in a brief manner, codifyied so as only the initiates could understand it.
Thus the need for commentaries made by people who not only know a lot of yoga, but who have experienced its practices themselves, since many of them cannot be understood no matter who plainly explained the might be, the must have been experienced and lived.
Out of the moder commentaries, i would say that this one, by Paramahamsa Satyananda Saraswati, and the one entitled "Raja Yoga" by Swami Vivekananda are the best approach to this fascinating yet difficul subject: indeed, Raja Yoga is not meant for begginers inasmuch as it is an advanced practice or sadhana.
Yet Satyananda's commentary is extraordinary since it presents:
1) The original sanscrit.
2) The transliteration of that phrase.
3) A translation word for word.
4) A complete english translation
5) A lenghty commetary on tne meaaning of the phrase.
As another Swamiji put it, in the introduction, this is a Manual that every psychologist and psychiatrist should have on their desks, since it brings forth a new (yet old) psychology far deeper and far more effective than anything we have had so far.
I really do reccommed this one book, as all those of the Yoga Publications Trust.
It is my belief that the three best collection on Yoga are:
1) Yoga Publications Trust
2) The Complete Works of Swami Sivananda Saraswati
3) The Complete Work of Swami Vivekananda
