About the book

In Light On Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali, author B. K. S. Iyengar elaborates on a yoga philosophy, which was described by Patanjali in his yoga sutras over 2,000 years ago. The original Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali consists of 196 sutras and forms the foundation of Raja yoga, which is considered as the highest form of yoga practice. These Sutras are considered to be the most profound study on the human psyche. To be able to practice this form of yoga, Patanjali ascribed an adherence to eight steps in order to silence the mind and achieve enlightenment. In Iyengar’s interpretation, the goal of a yogic is to combine the body, mind, emotions, and soul through various yoga postures and proper breathing techniques. Iyengar also stressed on the importance of the flow of energy and consciousness of the mind, which will occur once the posture and breathing are aligned. After reading his book, readers will soon discover that the division between the mind and body is simply illusory. By practising the yoga sutras and learning to control their breathing, individuals will open up a spiritual doorway of transformation. Behind each sutra, readers will also learn about the philosophy behind each technique. Iyengar’s goal in writing Light On Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali is to help individuals rid themselves of destructive emotions, which in turn give rise to destructive thoughts and actions. Iyengar also provides a personal perspective by including examples from his own life in order to illustrate the benefits of this yoga.
