From Popsi Narasimhan with a Foreword by Rita Keller.
This is a collection of translations of the Yoga Sutras of Patañjali from multiple authors. Translations for each sutra (in English from Sanskrit) from authors B.K.S Iyengar, Edwin Bryant, Jaganath Carrera, Chip Hartranft, Georg Feuerstein, Ravi Ravindra, Swami Satchidananda, Swami Vivekananda and Swami Hariharananda Aranya are juxtaposed so it enables the reader to compare and contrast the different ways each author translated it.
“This is a welcome edition to the ever-growing body of literature on Yoga philosophy. Popsi's compilation of multiple translations of each the sutras of Patanjali, and the sometimes considerable differences between them, afford the non specialized reader a glimpse at the very abstruse nature of the sutras themselves, the intellectual richness of the Sanskrit language, and the liberties translators can take in their decisions of how to render them. A very useful volume for anyone with a serious svadyaya (study) practice!”, Edwin Bryant, Professor of Hindu Religion and philosophy', Rutgers University
This makes studying the sutras easy and interesting for yoga practitioners! All proceeds from the sales of this book are being dedicated to Guruji B.K.S. Iyengar's Bellur Trust, in celebration of his birth centennial year.
