The Textbook of Yoga Psychology
A Definitive Translation & Interpretation of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali - by Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati (Ramamurti S. Mishra, M.D.)
The Yoga Sutra is a concise summary of the ancient oral Yoga tradition believed to have been compiled by Maharshi Patanjali thousands of years ago. It remains the authoritative source text of Yoga philosophy, psychology and practice today.

The Textbook of Yoga Psychology is a scholarly, definitive interpretation of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. First published in 1963, this seminal work is one of the major publications that emerged early in the prolific writing and teaching period of the author's life.

Integrating his extensive background in Eastern and Western medical science, his exceptional Sanskrit knowledge and keen yogic insight, Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati (known then as Ramamurti S. Mishra, M.D.) explores the scientific, psychological, metaphysical and spiritual dimensions of Yoga. The clarity, power and accessibility of the resulting translation and in-depth commentary serve to support beginning and experienced Yoga students in their Yoga practice and their process of transformation and self discovery.

In an extended introductory section of this text, the author introduces the Sankhya Yoga philosophy which underlies the Yoga system. A valuable appendix presents the Yoga Sutras in their original Sanskrit devanagari script with transliteration and Shri Brahmananda's revised translation (1986).
