An Interpretation by W. Q. Judge, assisted by J. H. Connelly. Patanjali's rules compel the student not only to acquire a right knowledge of what is and what is not real, but also to practice all virtues, and while results in the way of psychic development are not so immediately seen as in the case of the successful practitioner of Hatha Yoga, it is infinitely safer and is certainly spiritual, which Hatha Yoga is not. In Patanjali's Aphorisms there is some slight allusion to the practices of Hatha Yoga, such as "postures," each of which is more difficult than those preceding, and "retention of the breath," but he distinctly says that mortification and other practices are either for the purpose of extenuating certain mental afflictions or for the more easy attainment of concentration of mind...

Rama Prasada

The Yoga Darsana of Patanjali An intepretive translation by Rama Prasada. This translation by Rama Prasada is probably the best and clearest English translation ever made. It is so close to the original text that structures in the original Samskrt shine thru the English version.

The Scrollery Library

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali represent the primary text of the disciplines of yoga. It contains, in the form of mantras, explicit explaination of the theory and practice of Raja Yoga, or Ashtanga (eight-limbed yoga).

Yoga Movement

An Interpretation By Charles Johnston. The Book of the Spiritual Man! Introduction to Book I; The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are in themselves exceedingly brief, less than ten pages of large type in the original.
