The Yoga Sutras Intro:
"The Yoga Sutras"
[click image +]
This is a complete translation of the Yoga Sutras of Patañjali. I see this work as a collection of "koans" for meditation more than as a rigid set of "rules to live by," and have translated each verse accordingly.
There are three main aspects of this work:
1) A word-by-word translation from the Sanskrit, with derivations of each word and a concordance of every occurrence of every word in the Sutras.
2) My own translations of each Sutra, with special attention to the word-order and the multivalent meanings of many Sanskrit terms.
3) A selection of other good translations of each verse - so that the student may benefit from the full range of meanings implicit in each of these great sayings.
