Patanjali is recognized as the author who first wrote down the oral tradition of yoga philosophy. His Yoga Sutras (“Union Threads”) is broken down into four (4) sections outlining the benefits and methods of practicing the 8-Limbs of Yoga. Since the original text is in Sanskrit, a language unfamiliar to many in the West, there are hundreds (if not thousands) of translations, with commentaries. As is the case with any ancient text, translations and interpretations vary. So, do some comparative analysis using two (2) or more sources.
