As a yoga educator for the last 15 years, I have yet to find a truer, more complete, and accessible translation, rendering, or commentary of Patanjali’s seminal work – YOGA DARSHAN. Brijendra, Robert William Eaton shares with us the benefit of his many years of not only brilliant scholarship, but his years as one who has been faithfully engaged in real sadhana.

Every time I use his book, The Sootras of Patanjali Yog Darshan: Concise Rendition, in my teaching, my students always comment on how much they love the perfect clarity and wisdom of his translation. All of Brijendra’s books are like that – offered to us readers and yogis from the perspective of one who has done this work of chitt vritti nirodh and has most certainly himself attained that state of yog samadhi.
