Sutras by their nature cannot be directly translated, but rather need to be "unfolded", with their core linguistic elements fleshed out in order to show their unifying logic and consistency with the entire Vedic tradition of which they are a part. Aruna has done this masterfully, making the sutras accessible at a very deep level, even for those with no Sanskrit knowledge or familiarity with the massive body of literature underpinning the deceptively brief sutras. Each sutra has been carefully translated for easy understanding.
Aruna's commentaries draw directly on the great literature of the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita to show the conceptual links between them, exhaustively referenced. Best of all, the style is extremely readable and unburdened by academic prose or mystical mumbo-jumbo. All in all, an impressive and badly needed addition to the field. A must buy for every serious student of Yoga!
There are no authentic books in circulation on this important work on Yoga discipline. Aruna's book meets with the need in admirable measure. I congratulate him for his contribution to the pursuit of spiritual discipline.
