The Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali
Swami Prabhavananda and Christopher Isherwood, translators
Swami Prabhavananda said that everything that he knew about religion he put into this book. This book is a translation of the Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali, a seminal work on the practice of yoga and the root of all yoga systems. These ancient aphorisms teach how to control the mind and attain peace. The translation by Swami Prabhavananda and Christopher Isherwood is both true to the original text and beautifully, lucidly written.
