“Extraordinarily clear. . . . Hartranft makes Patanjali's complications seem somehow obvious.”—“Shambhala Sun ”
"A Yoga Sutra for the twenty-first century . . . translated into plain (but not boring) accessible language. . . . If there's a more succinct explanation of the enduring value of Patanjali's work, I'd sure like to hear it."—“Yoga Journal”
“Chip Hartranft has given us a fresh, authoritative, and brilliant new translation of and commentary on the ”Yoga-Sutra", and an entire generation of American yogis should be deeply grateful. His work successfully combines intellectual precision with emotional accessibility—a powerful marriage seldom even attempted with this notoriously difficult text. Hartranft is careful always to leave Patanjali's own genius in the foreground, and as a result the astounding intellectual architecture of the “Yoga-Sutra ”shines through. Bravo!"—Stephen Cope, author of “Yoga and the Quest for the True Self ”
“Much of contemporary yoga in the West has emphasized breathing and the body. These invaluable practices have been separated from the comprehensive ethical and meditative approach of the great teacher Patanjali. Recently there has been an increased interest in correcting this limitation. Chip Hartranft's brilliant new translation of and commentary on Patanjali's masterpiece moves interested yogis decisively in this direction. It is a clear and inspiring work of immense value for all serious practitioners.”—Larry Rosenberg, author of “Breath by Breath ” and “Living in the Light of Death ”
