What are the Yoga Sutra of Patañjali?

The Yoga Sutra are a collection of Sanskrit aphorisms compiled early in the common era by Sanskrit grammarian and philosopher Sri Patañjali. There are 196 sutra or verses that outline and synthesize the practice of yoga based on earlier Vedic philosophy and teachings.

Topics include:
