Overview from Barnes & Noble

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
This valuable book provides a complete manual for the study and practice of Raja Yoga, the path of concentration and meditation. This new deluxe printing of these timeless teachings is a treasure to be read and referred to again and again by seekers treading the spiritual path. The classic Sutras (thought-threads), at least 4,000 years old, cover the yogic teachings on ethics, meditation, and physical postures, and provide directions for dealing with situations in daily life. The Sutras are presented here in the purest form, with the original Sanskrit and with translation, transliteration, and commentary by Sri Swami Satchidananda, one of the most respected and revered contemporary Yoga masters. In this classic context, Sri Swamiji offers practical advice based on his own experience for mastering the mind and achieving physical, mental and emotional harmony.

Although this text may sound distant and lofty from our digital and fast paced world, many people find the Sutras surprisingly approachable and relevant for everyday life.

This link takes you to Sutra readings from past meetings and this is where the upcoming reading will be posted, usually a week before the gathering.

The group is open to everyone. The book is available to purchase online or through me but you can attend the first gathering without purchasing a book if you just want to try it out. The gathering will be led by Santoshi/Sydney.
