English, French and Dutch translations of the 'Yoga Sutra' of Pata±jali. The 'Yoga Sutra' of Pata±jali is a remarkable short text of about 1200 words, codifying the best yoga practices in 195 Sanskrit aphorisms. Yoga became one of the six schools of Hindu philosophy. In contrast to Jainism and Buddhism, it always kept close to the 'Vedas'. These crucial scriptures speak of three paths to freedom from ignorance and the suffering it brings: Ritual, Mystical Devotion and Yoga. The 'Yoga Sutra' of Pata±jali turned Hindu Yoga systematic and close to direct yogic experience. In 'The Yoga Sutra of Pata±jali: Translations and Commentary' (2016), the text is provided with a commentary from the perspective of a practicing Buddhist.
