The Yoga Sutra is the living source wisdom of the yoga tradition. Using it as a guide, we can unlock the hidden power of yoga, and experience the promise of yoga in our life. The Yoga Sutra is as fresh today as it was 2200 years ago when it was discovered by the sage Patanjali. By applying its living wisdom in our practice, we can achieve the purpose of life: lasting fulfillment and ultimate freedom.

The Secret of the Yoga Sutra is the first practitioner-oriented commentary which is fully grounded in a living tradition. It shares the essence of Pandit Tigunait's rigorous scholarly understanding of the Yoga Sutra, through the filter of experiential knowledge gained through decades of advanced yogic practices, and enriched by the gift of living wisdom he received from the masters of the Himalayan Tradition.

The expanded edition includes an extended glossary, two indexes, a full Appendix B and translation details for each of the 51 Sutras.

“The Secret of the Yoga Sutra underscores the living appeal of yoga study as a vehicle leading to meditative practice.”

Edwin Bryant, author of The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali

“From the very first pages of The Secret of the Yoga Sutra, the reader can feel the hand of a master – a scholar, a practitioner, a devotee. This commentary is not just about yoga. It is yoga.”

Stephen Cope, founder of the Kripalu Institute for Extraordinary Living

“Of the dozens of translations and explications of this text that exist in English alone, few possess the power and reliability of Pandit Rajmani Tigunait’s The Secret of the Yoga Sutra.”

Robert Svoboda, ayurvedic physician and author
