A SoulSearching Adventure with Patanjali Foreword by Yogacharya Dr. Ananda Balayogi Bhavanani, Chairman, International Centre for Yoga Education and Research (ICYER) A restless mind is the root cause of all your troubles, but a calm mind will liberate you. Want to know how to reach that state? In this gentle elaboration of the brilliant Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Vasudev Murthy delves into life’s fundamental questions. Taking the reader through Patanjali’s 196 powerpacked sutras, he explains the purpose and meaning of yoga, going beyond the popular physical aspects. He shares the steps we need to master to gain more control over our mind and, in turn, our daily life. He effortlessly interprets Patanjali’s profound wisdom and deep insights, simplifying the complex Sanskrit sutras in layman’s terms and answering pressing questions that we have asked through our lifetimes: Who am I? Where have I come from, and where will I go? Why must I be born again and again? In easy language, adding his own journey with the Yoga Sutras, the author distils the beautiful essence of this great cultural and spiritual masterpiece.
