Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras is one of the most important books about meditation, self-improvement, and the practice of yoga. This 2000-year old text describes how the mind works, how we can obtain peace, and how we can direct our thoughts, with the goal of achieving full freedom from all suffering.
The Yoga Sutras can be hard to decipher, let alone put into practice, but in this version, a practical presentation of the text, you will find a useful, easy-to-understand translation and commentary.
The world needs a revolution of consciousness. We must change the way we go about life and how we deal with one another. In this book, you’ll see how yoga can provide us with a blueprint for this revolution.
The author, Giridhari Das, is a Brazilian yoga guru who created The 3T Path, a down-to-earth presentation and application of yoga in the context of modern life that is changing the lives of thousands of people.
“The Yoga Sutras by Giridhari Das is perhaps the most entertaining and easy to read version of this classic text, among the dozens I’ve seen. Even the book’s layout and illustrations make the journey painless, like watching some really good movies on a long flight.
The profound core message of the Yoga Sutras is indeed timeless, as relevant and needed today as ever. And Giridhari Das has shown, to quote Mary Poppins, that a little bit of sugar makes the medicine go down.” – Hridayananda Das Goswami Acharyadeva, renowned spiritual master and Ph.D. in Sanskrit and Indian Studies, Harvard University
“In Revolution, his relatable translation of and commentary on Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, Giridhari Das shares with us a lifetime of research and experience in ancient yoga traditions and guides us through the sutras one by one, helping us understand them from our contemporary perspective and apply their wisdom to our day-to-day lives.” – –Dr. Carl Herzig, Professor of English, St. Ambrose University
