KRIYA YOGA SUTRAS OF PATANJALI AND THE SIDDHAS (eng)
- Marshall Govindan
- Babaji's Kriya Yoga, Bangalorre
Patanjali refers to his yoga as "Kriya Yoga": the "yoga of action with awareness." His Yoga-Sutras are universally considered to be among the two or three most important texts in the field of yoga. Until now, commentators have treated it as a philosophical reference, and have largely ignored its implications for yogic practice. They have also ignored the fact that it is also an esoteric work, and that only initiates, with sufficient prior experience, can grasp its deeper meaning.
This new translation and commentary provides a practical guide to Self-realization or enlightenment. It clearly explains how to apply Patanjali's profound philosophical teachings in everyday life, in any situation. When one practices the techniques of Kriya Yoga, it is like driving a powerful automobile. But without a roadmap, most students are "stuck in traffic" or at "dead ends." Now for the first time, there is a clear roadmap to guide the student to remarkable destinations.
