Rev. Jaganath Carrera breaks down each of Patanjali's words so the reader can further grasp the richness and depth of meaning in each of the Sanskrit words. As each word is unpacked, new levels of understanding behind each sutra are revealed. The book also explores different topics in the Yoga Sutras in greater depth that enables the reader to be able to see connections between many of the sutras that span the entire text. Making sense of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali is, at times, like following the travel directions of a giant. A giant's footprints ¯ huge strides that span mountaintops, rivers, lakes, and cities ¯ lack many important navigational cues. Without these details, we can become confused, lost, or hesitant to continue. This text attempts to fill in the gaps between these footprints, primarily through an in-depth examination of Patanjali's words ¯ words that point unerringly to the highest spiritual truths. In this text you will find: Word-for-word dictionary Commentary for key terms, Extensive cross-referencing Insights from sociology and psychology, mythology, Ayurveda, and various faith traditions, The influences that Buddhism and Jainism had on the Yoga Sutras Footnotes that expand and clarify key principles Inspirational quotes, Continuous translation with narration, and topic index sections, for easy referencing of basic themes.
