5.0 out of 5 stars excellent book 29 Mar 2005
Format:Paperback
I have bought a few books on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, this book is by far the best. It is easy to understand and to relate the Sutras to everyday life. It is a book you will refer to again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 30 Mar 2008
By Mrs. Z. L. Reynolds VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Sri Swami Satchidananda explains the Sutras in a clear and often entertaining way, and in an everyday context which is relevant to the modern world. In many ways some of the explorations are aimed at those new to the spiritual path, or those who have been practicing Asanas for a while and are looking to deepen their practice in a spiritual way. Those who have studied the Sutras before, or who have been following the Yogic path for a time may find some of the explanations superfluous, but there are still many valuable insights and any reader is sure to find this book a refreshing and entertaining read, and enjoy Sri Swami Satchidananda's endearing style- you can almost hear his voice when reading this. When buying the Yoga Sutras for my Dad, I chose this one as I knew he would enjoy the almost musical quality it has.

Swami Satchidanandaji explains clearly the Sutras by giving practical tips on how to apply them in our own life. The book is full of wisdom and is not meant to read and keep aside, but read and reflect and that too repeatedly. Verily, a treasure for the spiritual aspirants. Personally, studying few stanzas each day and reflecting on them, provides immense peace and upliftment. The original Sanskrit text with meanings also provides an additional benefit for seekers to commit the sutras to memory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Serious but readable book 4 Jan 2009
Format:Paperback
I was first given this book several years back, but recently, I found a copy in my friend's study. It was a delight to reread the pages again, as Swami Satchidananda's writing is timeless. I gained much from revisiting this old friend, and it is this book that I used as a cross-rerference when I was writing my book, LIVE Patanjali!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Breath of Life 15 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have studied the Bible, the Qur'an and now I am training to be a Yoga Teacher I have come to the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. The commentary by Sri Swami Satchidananda is superb. It provokes so much thought and further study. It is at the same time profound and relevant. Recommended to me by another Yoga Teacher I'm so pleased I followed her advice and purchased this one, it will be a companion for years to come.

3.0 out of 5 stars Yoga Sutras of Patanjali 24 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This may not be the translation for me - there are many other translations. I found some of the views not to my taste, but again this may be me fighting where I am with myself, or not really understanding the text. Very interesting as I am new to the sutras, however the revelations of Lazarus, or the Bible or I-Ching, etc, etc are all very similar in their teachings and enlightments. It's what floats your boat! There is something for everyone to think about who wants to think deeply about their spirituality.

5.0 out of 5 stars A spiritual read worth having 18 Feb 2013
By Aleisha
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is such a spiritual book
I love this book.
I'm still reading this book now and just can't seem to put it down.
It's packed full of phrases that you can implement in your life.
It's a fantastic read. You can't read this book as a novel, but instead in sectioned chapters as it's written.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard work
Have to say that I gave up about half way through this book as it concentrated on the Sutras precise meaning rather than their relevance to my life in the West.
