This review is from: How to Know God: Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali (Paperback)
This book is beautiful in tying Patanjali's classic with modern commentary. The latter includes expositions and explication of the theosophical Hindu background, drawn from the Vedas, the Gita, Sankhya and even Buddhism. It also includes metaphors, anecdotes and practical examples while also explaining differences between various strands and in reference to christian script and practice too. If you have delved in Hinduism, Buddhism, Yoga, meditation and so forth, this is a must. You get to the core of what Yoga is all about and how to achieve it.
