The Yoga-System of Patañjali

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


James Haugton Wood's early 20th century translation of Patañjali's Yoga Sūtras is an indispensable guide for Yoga practitioners as well as others interested in the classical Hindu & Buddhist traditions. Wood's translation includes two major commentaries on the Yoga Sūtras by Veda-Vyāsa and Vācaspatimiçra, both indispensable for a proper understanding of the text. Rather than a pure academic interpretation, however, Woods brings another unusual quality to this translation. Besides fulfilling his academic responsibilities at Harvard teaching Indian philosophy and Sanskrit , he himself was considered a guru or teacher of Yoga in Japan. He founded the Japan Yoga Society, translated the Yoga Sūtras into Japanese and had a devout following of Japanese practitioners who to this day still bring flowers to his graveside located above Lake Biwa in the small Midera sub-temple of Homyoin near Kyōto.
