" Extraordinarily clear. . . . Hartranft makes Patañ jali's complications seem somehow obvious." — "Shambhala Sun" " A Yoga Sutra for the twenty-first century . . . translated into plain (but not boring) accessible language. . . . If there's a more succinct explanation of the enduring value of Patañ jali's work, I'd sure like to hear it." — "Yoga Journal"

"Chip Hartranft has given us a fresh, authoritative, and brilliant new translation of and commentary on the "Yoga-Sutra," and an entire generation of American yogis should be deeply grateful. His work successfully combines intellectual precision with emotional accessibility—a powerful marriage seldom even attempted with this notoriously difficult text. Hartranft is careful always to leave Patañjali's own genius in the foreground, and as a result the astounding intellectual architecture of the "Yoga-Sutra "shines through. Bravo!"—Stephen Cope, author of "Yoga an

-Much of contemporary yoga in the West has emphasized breathing and the body. These invaluable practices have been separated from the comprehensive ethical and meditative approach of the great teacher Patanjali. Recently there has been an increased interest in correcting this limitation. Chip Hartranft's brilliant new translation of and commentary on Patanjali's masterpiece moves interested yogis decisively in this direction. It is a clear and inspiring work of immense value for all serious practitioners.---Larry Rosenberg, author of Breath by Breath and Living in the Light of Death

From the Inside Flap

In just 196 short aphorisms, this classic work of Indian philosophy spells out succinctly how the mind works, and how it is possible to use the mind to attain liberation. Compiled in the second or third century C.E., the "Yoga-Sutra is a road map of human consciousness-and a particularly helpful guide to the mind states one encounters in meditation, yoga, and other spiritual practices. It expresses the truths of the human condition with great eloquence: How we know what we know, why we suffer, and how we can discover the way out of suffering. Chip Hartranft's fresh translation and extensive, lucid commentary bring the text beautifully to life. He also provides useful auxiliary materials, including an afterword on the legacy of the "Yoga-Sutra and its relevance for us today.
