Product Details


"Extraordinarily clear. . . . Hartranft makes Patañjali’s complications seem somehow obvious."—Shambhala Sun

"A Yoga Sutra for the twenty-first century . . . translated into plain (but not boring) accessible language. . . . If there’s a more succinct explanation of the enduring value of Patañjali’s work, I’d sure like to hear it."—Yoga Journal

"Chip Hartranft has given us a fresh, authoritative, and brilliant new translation of and commentary on the Yoga-Sutra, and an entire generation of American yogis should be deeply grateful. His work successfully combines intellectual precision with emotional accessibility—a powerful marriage seldom even attempted with this notoriously difficult text. Hartranft is careful always to leave Patañjali’s own genius in the foreground, and as a result the astounding intellectual architecture of the Yoga-Sutra shines through. Bravo!"—Stephen Cope, author of Yoga and the Quest for the True Self

"Much of contemporary yoga in the West has emphasized breathing and the body. These invaluable practices have been separated from the comprehensive ethical and meditative approach of the great teacher Patañjali. Recently there has been an increased interest in correcting this limitation. Chip Hartranft’s brilliant new translation of and commentary on Patañjali’s masterpiece moves interested yogis decisively in this direction. It is a clear and inspiring work of immense value for all serious practitioners."—Larry Rosenberg, author of Breath by Breath and Living in the Light of Death
