Scholars estimate that Patanjali wrote these sutras 100 – 200 years before Christ. The sutras form the basis for what has become known as Raja Yoga or Royal yoga. Many scholars and practitioners see this as the most organized and complete definition of this path. The sutras include five abstentions (like nonviolence), five observances (like cleanliness and surrender to God), disciplining the body, controlling the breath, and the withdrawal of senses from external objects.
The Yoga Sutras Forum
These sutras are not meant as a theoretical teaching. Rather, they serve as the basis for daily practice that becomes a lifetime journey. This is a wonderful place to share with others your experiences including frustrations and successes.
