Publisher's Summary

The Yoga Sutra is the living source wisdom of the yoga tradition. Using it as a guide, we can unlock the hidden power of yoga, and experience the promise of yoga in our life. The Yoga Sutra is as fresh today as it was 2200 years ago when it was discovered by the sage Patanjali. It is the first practitioner-oriented commentary which is fully grounded in a living tradition. By applying its living wisdom in our practice, we can achieve the purpose of life: lasting fulfillment and ultimate freedom.

Excellent,traditionally presented teaching on Yoga

Good scholarship and years of practice have combined to produce a top quality explanation of the Yoga of Patanjali.

AMAZING AMAZING COMMENTARY

I loved listening to this audiobook and plan to also buy the physical book to keep as a handy reference. The content and the narration was outstanding! Very clear, informative, and illuminating! To the author—-Please continue to use DC Rao to narrate your books! Please also consider writing a commentary on The Gita! I plan to purchase all of your previous works as well as your future products.

A Wonderful Tutorial

I was reading The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali when I found this book. Dr. Tiguanait's explanations are incredibly helpful. If you are studying The Yoga Sutras, this book is a must.

Absolutely loved it! It is a must for anybody understanding the knowledge of past Sages.

As I am on my sixth time listening to this audiobook. Many different things are seeping in subtly in at the correct time needed. As practice is difficult after due to a severe TBI. More practice in the way focus back to my breath. As more conceptual practice that thus leads to higher states of samadhi and the ultimate aspiration of the other shore. Never expecting The bearing of fruit, As to never expecting anything. Thus just open your heart, and open mind, mindfully while always practicing Meta. -Robert Ouellette-

Thank you for creating this in Audible

Being able to listen to the Sanskrit and the commentary helped me understand in a way that was much more impactful than reading the book alone. I'm looking forward to the next Chapter!

Far from the truth.

Subjective and an extended biography. Disappointing and rather boring . I had to stop after two chapters .
