This book is a compilation of the 110 lectures delivered by Sri Swami Krishnananda on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali in the year 1976. This first volume focuses on the Samadhi Pada, the first chapter of the Yoga Sutras. It is an incisive and thought-provoking analysis of the subject. The book defines the special meaning of the word 'yoga' as used by Patanjali, discarding the narrow denotation of the word in common parlance. It is worth nothing that the book is not about Hatha Yoga and the asanas as we know them, but about the philosophical basis of these as expounded in the Yoga Sutras.

About the Author:

Swami Krishnananda was born on the 25th of April, 1922 into a highly religious and orthodox Brahmin family, and was given the name Subbaraya. At an early age, he had become very well versed in the Sanskrit language and its sacred texts. The longing for seclusion pulled him to Rishikesh, where he arrived in the summer of 1944 and met Swami Sivananda, who initiated the young Subbaraya into Sannyasa on the sacred day of Makara Sankranti, the 14th of January, 1946, and gave him the name Swami
Krishnananda.

Swami Krishnananda is a highly respected philosophical writer, especially on metaphysics, psychology and sociology. Swamiji's books are known the world over as excellent presentations of answers to the daily questions that arise in the day-to-day confrontations of a human being. Swami Krishnananda was the General Secretary of The Divine Life Society from 1961 until 2001. Swamiji was a direct disciple of His Holiness Swami Sivananda, founder of this Institution. Swamiji attained Mahasamadhi in 2001.
