The Mat S6 E4 Patanjali Yoga Teachings: Sutra #1 “The subject now being offered is Yoga”


Dear Friends,

Join us as we review the teachings of Patanjali in the book review of  “Demystifying Patanjali”. To best understand what the “founder” of  Yogic teachings was trying to express when he created his masterpiece we will take an approach of going through each of the   Yoga Sutra’s (system of learning the eight limbs of yoga).

Patanjali is considered to have created the authoritative text on yoga in his classical writings during C 2d Century B.C.; The Yoga School of Indian Philosophy.

What we soon discover in the beginning of the book ” is that Patanjali did not offer any particular system or way of learning yoga. Instead, he teaches us in his writings as translated with the wisdom of Paramhansa Yogananda there are stages in our journey which every “truth seeker” must travel.

Patanjali explains “Sankhya”  is meant to persuade people of the uselessness of seeking fulfillment through physical senses. Our physical bodies are not our true self.  Sutras are a meditative discovery of liberation consisting of these eight steps of yoga.
