I have always loved the study of the Yoga Sutras, and of yoga philosophy in general, but this book has ignited a new passion in me, and has allowed me to feel more equipped to at least introduce some of the key concepts of this often - complex, but pivitally important work to my students.
Reading this book has definitely improved my manual, and perhaps more importantly, has given me a heightened sense of responsibility to make sure the teachers who come through this school understand the importance of the Yoga Sutras in our work as teachers and in our lives as yogis.
Thanks to Reverend Jaganath for his devoted work, and for doing such a great job explaining things to those of us who are quite "average" in our understanding and interperetation of these sacred threads. What a gift!
Pantanjali's complex sutra....I'd recommend for anyone
struggling to better understand sutras. I am using it in
a study group and is by far the best guide in the group!
So far, it is very good. It is very readable. The author defines the concepts and words in an easy to understand way.
I will post a more extensive review later.
I do recommend this book if you are just a beginner trying to understand the Yoga Sutras.
When I first began studying the Yoga Sutras, I only had one book, another commentary. I didn't realize the value of having multiple books to aid in understanding the Sutras. Carrera's book is one I go to first for clarification. Highly recommend!
