Origin

Yoga is the most ancient science which has been taught for thousands of years. Maharṣi Patañjali systematized and organized it by formulating 196 aphorisms, which are called the Yoga-Sūtras.

A Tribute to Maharṣi Patañjali

Maharṣi Patañjali stands out as one of the mightiest trees of wisdom to have emerged from the fertile soil of ancient India.Maharṣi Patañjali made a three-fold contribution to humanity:

His insights on Sanskrit grammer to the purification of speech.
His insights on medicine to the purification of the body.
His insights on Yoga to the purification of the mind.

Maharṣi Patañjali classified the Yoga Sūtrās into Four Pādas (chapters)

  • Samādhi Pāda

    Maharṣi Patañjali explains how the modes of the mind operate and how they must be halted in order for a Yogī to achieve Samādhi.

  • Sādhanā Pāda

    Maharṣi introduces the eight limbs of Yoga and explains each of them in detail, along with the fruit of their practice.

  • Vibhūti Pāda

    Here Maharṣi elaborates upon a special Yogic method known as Samyama.

  • Kaivalya Pāda

    Finally Maharṣi describes the ultimate purpose of existence – to achieve the state of Enlightenment
