Patanjali Yoga Sutras: Translation and Commentary in the Light of Vedanta Scripture is truly ground breaking, a unique perspective on these sutras that is both new and ancient.
Aruna returns the gems of Patanjali from being limited within one of the six philosophical schools of medieval India to their universal fountainhead in the ancient scriptures of India. In the light of Vedanta scriptures they shine with a luster rarely seen since their inception over two thousand years ago.
Connecting these sutras to hundreds of Veda and Vedanta mantras and the verses of the Bhagavad Gita, this modern translation and brilliant commentary succeeds in speaking directly to the listener's heart, not the sectarian head. Aruna lovingly treats these jewels as reflecting the freedom we all seek in life, not as historical artifacts of mystical curiosity.
The sutras are in Sanskrit and transliteration, with English word-for-word and translation plus a rich, detailed commentary. Aruna's authoritative commentary brings in the connections of the sutras with the India sacred scriptures. This has never been attempted before in translation and reveals the universal application of these sutras to all Indians and to all students of all schools of yoga throughout the world.
A must read for every student and teacher of yoga who yearns for rekindling the spiritual brilliance lying within the ethical and meditative practices of yoga.
