Yoga Sutra by Master Patanjali

Courses in the Yoga Sutra offer a fresh, authentic, and thoroughly practical perspective to the classic text while demonstrating how to use the lessons in the Yoga Sutra in daily practice as a guide for reaching Yoga’s ultimate goals.

Topics include the true meaning and purpose of Yoga, the essential components of a successful practice, the four "infinite thoughts," how to perceive ultimate reality, mental afflictions and why we suffer, karmic causes and their effects, the eight limbs of Yoga, the nature of the inner body, and transforming the ordinary body and mind into those of an Enlightened Being.

Original Translation by Geshe Michael Roach, updates by Brian Smith and Kimberley Lafferty
