Kriya Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the Siddhas - English

Rs. 375.00

by M. Govindan

Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras are universally considered to be among the two or three most important texts in the field of yoga. Patanjali refers to his yoga as “Kriya Yoga”: the “yoga of action with awareness”. Until now, commentators have treated it as a philosophical reference, and have largely ignored its implications for yogic practice. They have also ignored the fact that it is also an esoteric work, and that only initiates, with sufficient prior experience, can grasp its deeper meaning. This new translation and commentary provides a practical guide to Self-realization or enlightenment. It clearly explains how to apply Patanjali’s profound philosophical teachings in everyday life, in any situation with a unique “practice” section after each verse’s commentary. When one practices the techniques of Kriya Yoga, it is like driving a powerful automobile. But without a roadmap, most students are “stuck in traffic” or at “dead ends.” Now for the first time, there is a clear roadmap to guide the student to remarkable destinations. “ M. Govindan’s Kriya Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the Siddhars is a valuable addition to the study of Yoga in general and the Yoga-Sutra in particular. I can wholeheartedly recommend it. In particular, the growing number of students of Kriya Yoga throughout the world will find his treatment indispensable, but others will benefit from it.” From the foreword by Georg Feuerstein, Ph.D., author of The Sutras of Patanjali and the Encyclopedia of Yoga.

"A significant contribution to the sadhana of every serious yoga student, this copious (nearly 300 pages) new work, the result of a 10-year effort, includes detailed translation, tips for integrating the lessons into one's practice, references to other commentaries, and indexes to both Sanskrit and English keywords in the text." - Yoga Journal - November 2001

"Marshall Govindan has produced an excellent and easily readable commentary on the often arcane Yoga Sutras, the main text of classical Yoga compiled by Patanjali from older perennial yogic teachings of India. Notably, Govindan has provided a unique perspective on this profound work from the Kriya Yoga and South Indian Shaivite traditions that gives his rendering a special value for disciples on these paths. He takes the Yoga Sutras out of academic confusion and into the realm of deeper yoga practice. He reveals the many sides of the true yogic science of consciousness that go far beyond asana or popular Yoga today." - David Frawley (Vamadeva Shastri), author "Yoga and Ayurveda", Director of American Institute of Vedic Studies.
