(I write this as I wait for paint to dry on some final touches of a painting I'm working on..)
The Yoga Sutras by Patanjali sit in the corner of my belief foundation like a thick granite block. So many versions are out there, translations that is, and one of them particularly sticks out... but I can't seem to find it anymore. ARG. I printed it out, so luckily I have a copy of this favoured version, and I intend to publish my own interpretation of it.
Here are some free online versions you can peruse. Some of them have completely been changed to house different schools of thought.. I don't know if I agree with that, but I want to give variety here.
The Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali
The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali translated by Charles Johnston
The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali as translated by "BonGiovanni"
The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali-Yoga.Org
The Yoga Sutras as translated by Chester Messenger
The Yoga Sutras as translated by Sanderson Beck
The Yoga Sutras as translated by Tibetan Master Djwhal Kuhl (I Really like this one)
Ok that's enough example ;)
Now, I hope to interpret it without using Gods or Psychic phenomena.. No new age flare, just basic and concise. To make it available to anyone, not just those who've studied the Sutras.
