Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
Description
Foreword
The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are the standard Text on Yoga and these Sutras constitute a philosophy as well as a practical technique of meditation. The present edition is a result of the labour of love extended by Dr. Sita Nambiar, a recognised scholar in Sanskrit literature and Indian philosophy. The author has carefully selected relevant Sutras from the original Text and has given her annotations which are highly useful to beginners seeking, to gain knowledge of this majestic production of Sage Patanjali, which is one of the Six Darshanas or systems of philosophy in India.

Here I would like to mention that Sutras I. 17 "Vitarkavicharananda-smitarupanugamat samprajnatah," and III. 42 "Bahirakalpita vrittih mahavideha tatah prakashavarnakshayah" are not properly explained by commentators who mostly gloss over these Sutras with a few words of remark as if the whole thing is very clear. I feel that these two Sutras are the high watermark of the meditational technique, the meaning of which cannot be understood by mere intellectual scholarship.

Introduction
"He who removed the impurities of the mind by (the teaching of) Yoga, of speech by (his exposition of) Grammar and of the body by (composing his treatise on the science of medicine) unto that doyen of sages, I bow with joined hands."

This verse shows that the author of the above mentioned three treatises is one and, the same Patanjali. This view is not well established. When Patanjali lived is also not known. Scholars guess that Patanjali wrote the Yoga Sutras somewhere between 4th C.B.C. and 4th C.A.D. The Yoga doctrine was known to the authors of the Upanishads much before Patanjali. Patanjali perhaps restated them in the sutra form and gave a philosophy of his own. His philosophy is dualistic. But modern scholars like Swami Vivekananda and Swami Krishnananda from their own experience perhaps, say that in its ultimate stage the experience is non-dualistic only. According to them the Ultimate Consciousness is only one. There cannot be a Purusha separate from the other Purushas and separate from Prakriti.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
