This valuable book provides a complete manual for the study and practice of Raja Yoga, the path of concentration and meditation. This new edition of these timeless teachings is a treasure to be read and referred to again and again by seekers treading the spiritual path. The classic Sutras (thought-threads), at least 4,000 years old, cover the yogic teachings on ethics, meditation, and physical postures, and provide directions for dealing with situations in daily life. The Sutras are presented here in the purest form, with the original Sanskrit and with translation, transliteration, and commentary by Sri Swami Satchidananda, one of the most respected and revered contemporary Yoga masters. In this classic context, Sri Swamiji offers practical advice based on his own experience for mastering the mind and achieving physical, mental and emotional harmony.

One of finest books on Phisosphy
Great book to enhance your Mind and Body. I got interested in Meditation again after 15 years gap. I had a miraculous improvement in just 5 weeks where blood pressure and pulse rate all improved by 15 points. I have a marginal high blood pressure for few years. I am still taking medication. The blood pressure clock has been set back by 15 years in just 5 week. The best blood pressure reading I got today was in Cardiologist’s office which was 100/70. Last time I saw that kind of blood pressure was 15 years ago. The acid test will be if I can have normal pressure in 6 months with out medication. My meditation / breathing exercises are based on knowledge gained from other sources.
A very important book for Yoga/Meditation. Easy to read but worthy of much study
A seminal text, worth studying for valuable insights into mediation/yoga. Each Sutra is a short statement which is followed by an explanation of its importance to the study of Yoga/Meditation. Swami Satchidananda (who opened the Woodstock Festival in 1969) did a very nice job translating this and I find it to be accessible and easy to read. I also purchased the pocket edition to keep in my yoga bag so if I have a break before a class, I can make productive use of my time.
This came highly recommended by my yoga teachers as the most accessible entrance to understanding and learning the sutras. I agree – I love it, the energy of it is great, the descriptions and interpretations very meaningful.
Essential for any yogi
This book is essential reading for anyone who wants to truly take the practice of yoga seriously. I find it to be fascinating and something that is giving me a foundational core for my practice.
An easy way to learn about yoga and beyond
This should be read by anyone looking to practice yoga or gain some serious insight in life. It’s one of those books that you end up needing to put down to reflect on what you just read. Very cool.

I have several translations of Patanjali’s yoga sutras – I like this better than some others because he actually includes the Sanskrit as well as his translation. None of the others I have do this. I just really like that I can see for myself what is being translated.
Well written, sampled with many stories
There are many commentaries on Yoga sutras of Patanjali written by various Swamiji and yoga practiceners. I found as many as 112 books in the market published as commentaries on Yoga sutras of Patanjali. Most of them are mere translations. Some books are translations coupled with some asana postures. There are very few books stand out. Swami Satchidananda’s book is one of them. Philosophy of Yoga can be dry for a cluttered mind. While his book is also more of a translation, he drives the theme of each verse/ sloka by telling a story, which makes the book interesting to read. While simplifying the explanation, he made sure that he drove the point to the reader.
Earnest, simple and coherent
Very earnest commentaries follow the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali at an honest cost, coherent with the spirit of the teachings. Whether or not some of what is explained is in your experience or whether you choose to believe some of the Creation hypotheses, the simple exercisesthat are explained in a simple and straightforward manner are there for you to try and see for yourself as to their efficacy.
Great Commentary on Yoga Sutras. The first few pages were just fantastic. This books is more about the philosophy of Yoga than the actual practice. A must read for everyone looking for inner peace.
A must read!
A must-read for anyone delving into the ideas of self-awareness or meditation, or interested in learning more about enlightenment and/or the practice of yoga. The Sutras themselves are hard to understand, BUT, Swami does an EXCELLENT job of decoding them and explaining them as to how we can utilize them in present day. After reading a few of them, I found myself referring back to some of Swami’s stories/examples and saw how it really did apply. Highly recommended for the yogi and anyone getting started in yoga.
