Stephen H Phillips [Work in progress]

Yoga ("Yoga" with a capital "Y" as opposed to yogic practices) is a classical metaphysical system whose founding text is the Yoga-sutra (c. 400 CE). Yogic practices long predate the Yoga philosophy of the Yoga-sutra. Furthermore, yogic practices were, and are, advocated by diverse schools and religious teachers, such as Buddhists and Vedantins. The Yoga-sutra itself has, in addition to a metaphysical teaching about reality, the aspect of a "how-to " book on yogic practices. It also expresses psychological theses, such as karma, that were almost pan-Indian throughout the classical culture (i.e., embraced by Buddhists and Jainas as well as Hindus) and that are influential today.

Trevor Leggett [Extract from the Sutras]

Sankara on the Yoga Sutras. The present work is the first complete English translation of a highly significant historical find, an unknown early Sanskrit sub-commentary purporting to be by Sankara, on the Yoga sutras of Patanjali. It is judged to be a genuine work of Sankara, India's greatest riligious and philosophical genius and architect of the non-dual Vedanta school. This is a sub-commentary (vivarana) to the terse exposition of Patanjali by Vyasa, the earliest surviving classic of the Yoga school. That school differs from Sankara's Vedanta on several philosophical points, but he regarded it as authoritative on meditation practice, which is central to both schools.

Shri Shibendu Lahiri Ji

Freedom is the first step. Freedom is in the beginning. It is not an end result of any endeavour or effort or ego-trips in any form. It is the energy of seeing and understanding, not seeking and undertaking. Enlightenment is not entanglement with any pre-concept or predetermined postulate, "it is" - not "it will be" or "should be". Doing anything for freedom from the mind while using the mind is the very denial of this freedom. To be able to comprehend this, is the supreme confirmation of this freedom. To perceive this freedom directly by and for oneself, all pursuits and paradoxes about freedom must come to an end. Freedom exists in disembodied and non-mental intelligence and energy, not in the intellect and ego.

Patanjali Yoga Sutra by Davin C. Enig

Translation, commentary and editing by Davin C. Enigl. Even in Buddhism there seems to be possibilities of reversion back out of pure consciousness, despite the claims of Vipassana meditation philosophy that yoga's kaivalya (perfect spiritual enlightenment of samaadhi) can have reversions back out of pure consciousness and yoga is therefore incomplete. Still, yoga's claims so far are the most permanent system devised. Of course, when the Patanjali Yoga Sutra was written, Buddhism was already well established. So, it would seem if Buddhism has a defect of reversion, Patanjali would certainly have had time to correct his version of yoga philosophy to make it overcome the difficulties in Buddhist philosophy. Whether it is then fair to claim that yoga is superior to Buddhism is an open question, even though the Patanjali Yoga Sutra does, in fact, seem to correct errors (illogical sections and reversion deficiencies) of Buddhism.

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali by Dennis Hill

The Yoga Sutras were compiled about 2,000 years ago by the sage Patanjali from an oral tradition reaching back into unknowable antiquity. He gives us the essential wisdom for the practice of yoga and meditation to know, fi rst hand, the essence of our true Self—the conscious indweller that enlivens this body. Experiencing the fully conscious state shows us the essential transcendent nature of the universe to bring us a state of undisturbed joyous tranquillity. Traditionally, this wisdom has been handed down from master to student as a transmission of the means to liberation. The term “yoga” appeared in the Vedas long before Patanjali lived, but the Yoga Sutras stand in history as the fi rst comprehensive treatise on the method of yoga and liberation. Patanjali speaks primarily from a point of view of the Samkya philosophy and the meditative Raja Yoga, giving us much of the Sanskrit vocabulary we see in the sutras.
