Making sense of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali is, at times, like following the travel directions of a giant. A giant’s footprints — huge strides that span mountaintops, rivers, lakes, and cities — lack many important navigational cues. Without these details, we can become confused, lost, or hesitant to continue.

This text attempts to fill in the gaps between these footprints, primarily through an in-depth examination of Patanjali’s words — words that point unerringly to the highest spiritual truths.

In this text you will find:
• Word-for-word dictionary
• Commentary for key terms
• Extensive cross-referencing
•Insights from sociology and psychology, mythology, Ayurveda, and various faith traditions
• The influences that Buddhism and Jainism had on the Yoga Sutras
• Footnotes that expand and clarify key principles
• Inspirational quotes
• Continuous translation with narration, and topic index sections, for easy referencing of basic themes
