“A wonderful translation, full of contemporary insight yet luminous with eternal truth.”—Jacob Needleman The Yoga Sutras were cast in their present form in India around the third century b.c. Yoga is from the Sanskrit root meaning “union,” and a sutra is a thread or aphoristic verse. Alistair Shearer’s lucid introduction and superb translation, fully preserving Patanjali’s jewel-like style, bring these ancient but vital teachings to those who seek the path of self-knowledge today.
In Jainism, it is claimed that sutras offer the sermons of Vardhamana himself (also known as Mahavira) while in Buddhism they contain the teachings of the Buddha, between the period where he gained enlightenment (Nirvana) and his death (Mahaparinirvana).
Whether the sutras actually contain the teachings of these important figures has been subject to endless debate, since many sutras unquestionably postdate the time of the figures whose teachings are claimed to be presented in them.
