The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali with commentary by Shri Lahiri Mahasaya and Metaphorical Explanations
The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali is a classic Sanskrit text written by Sage Patanjali. Written about 5000 years ago, the Yoga Sutra is deceptively concise: contain four books, which explore the subjects of samadhi (super conscious experience), sadhana (spiritual practice), vibhuti (benefits and yogic powers), and kaivalya (supreme liberation). Kriya Yoga is the only yoga mentioned in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. This is the same yoga described in the highly acclaimed international bestseller Autobiography of a Yogi, written by Paramahamsa Yogananda.
In Paramahamsa Prajnanananda’s book, The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali with commentary by Shri Lahiri Mahasaya and Metaphorical Explanations, he includes key translations of the Sanskrit text as well as the original foreword and astute commentary by acclaimed Yogiraj Shri Lahiri Mahasaya. His explanation builds upon this substantial foundation with insightful metaphorical explanations, making the sutras more comprehensible to contemporary seekers.
This new set of reflections is essential recommended reading for every yogi and spiritual seeker on the path of Truth and self-realisation.
