Raja Yoga Sutras
Raja Yoga presents an in-depth study of the mind based on revelations of enlightened sages compiled by Sage Patanjali centuries before Christ. Literally translated as the “Royal Yoga,” this treatise has been the basis for yoga practice since its inception, offering a pragmatic, step-by-step guide for spiritual aspirants. Swami Jyotirmayananda elucidates with rare intuition the subtle meaning of the Sutras to help control and harness the powers of the mind for the purpose of discovering the infinite possibilities within, culminating in the revelation “I Am That Am I.”
