Spells out Succinctly how your Mind Works, and how it can be used by you to Attain Liberation
In just 196 short aphorisms, The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, a 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 C.E., 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 a way out of the 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 to us today.
Chip Hartranft's work bridges the traditions of yoga and Buddhist meditation. He is the founding director or the Arlington Center in Arlington, Massachusetts, a teaching center dedicated to the integration of yoga and dharma practice. He leads retreats in the United States and abroad that blend yoga movement, breathwork, and mindfulness.
