The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali: A New Edition, Translation, and Commentary
Edwin F. Bryant
North Point Press
There's a growing selection of commentaries on the Yoga Sutras but this one stands out as a useful crossover between more scholarly texts and those aimed at more 'everyday' students. Edwin Bryant has chosen a selection of classical commentaries to reference in his own commentary, including Vyasa and Vijnanabhiksu, making this an invaluable 'one stop shop' for reference. In addition to the ...
How to Know God: The Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali
Vedanta Press & Bookshop, 1968
eternally relevant, immediately resonant
A timeless classic, to be returned to throughout one's life, throughout the year, to frame the day. My copy dates to the first printing, Dec. 1969, one of the survivors from countless relocations. The commentary draws on a rich variety of other sources to illuminate Patanjali's Sutras, such as this one, from Taoist scriptures: "Heaven arms with compassion those whom it would not see destroyed." ...

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali: Commentary on the Raja Yoga Sutras by Sri Swami Satchidananda
Sri S. Satchidananda
Integral Yoga Publications
excellent explanation of the Sutras
I don't have anything very eloquent to say except that I love this book, and I love Satchidananda. Reading his words, you feel like he's your old friend, or maybe your granddad imparting a few words of wisdom on you. I had been intimidated about reading the Yoga Sutras, but his explanations helped me understand and really brought them to life for me. I highly recommend this book and any of ...
The Kama Sutra of Vatsyayana Translated From the Sanscrit in Seven Parts With Preface, Introduction and ...
Public Domain Books, 2009
KamSut terminally boring
I know, we westerners just can't appreciate things Oriental. While attempting to read KamSut, I had to set my alarm to wake me every 4 minutes. I would have burned the damned thing except KamSut is on my Kindle. Oh, well! And Amazon wouldn't let me rate at zero stars.
The Complete Kama Sutra : The First Unabridged Modern Translation of the Classic Indian Text
Park Street Press
Outstanding translation of a classic text
I don't doubt that many people buy this work because of the Kama Sutra's racy reputation. Despite the fact that Danielou is not shy about translating issues of same-sex intercourse, seduction of other men's wives, and such, the overall work here is of immense historical value. First Dalielou provides a remarkably straight-forward translation to the text itself, preserving is structure to a ...
The Complete Illustrated Kama Sutra
Not just about sex
I found that this book is a well written piece of work that not only talks about how to get closer to one's partner in bed, but also how to get close to one's partner in life. Simple rules of courtship and love are discussed, and overall, I would recommend this book to anyone searching for a good relationship how to book.

Excellent. Very Enjoyable (and Arousing) Reading
This book is in excellent taste, which helps both to quell any trepidation and to engross the reader in the subject matter. The author explains at the outset that this book is about "supercharged" love making with a very special partner, not just about killer sex. She elaborates on more than one occassion that it is the trust between the two partners and the desire to gratify the other person ...

Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
B K S Iyengar

A living yogi
A true gift to mankind is found in this author -- I've been watching his serene face in weird, twisted poses, and have been following his instructions for breathing (pranayama) for a long breathless moment, and he still amazes me. This book is one of dozens that reflect on the writing of patanjali, a bce period holy man that wrote three books about what he felt were important issues for ...

Three Leaves, 2009
Clear, Consise, Unbiased
So this is one of my favorite books in the world--I've taught in yoga centers around the world, and when I give lectures I base them on what's in this book. it's clear (doesn't use technical language), consise (it mainly consists of only 108 pages), and can serve as an excellent introduction to the yoga sutra for people who have been practicing yoga asana for years without ever encountering the ...
PGW - A, 2002
They don't call it "Perfection of Wisdom" for nothing!
