The Yoga Sūtra of Patañjali
Chapter One Samādhi Pādaḥ
The Wisdom of the West as a guide to appreciating the Wisdom of the East arose
from a project for trainee Yoga practitioners being asked to prepare and present a
‘book’ featuring a chosen translation of each verse from the Yoga Sūtra Chapter One,
supported and complemented by a personally chosen quote from a Western source.
“A short saying often contains much wisdom.”
It was met with an enthusiastic response to the point where I said I would also
contribute a ‘version’. It is offered here, as a PDF in both A4 and US Letter formats,
in the spirit of Paramparā with an appreciation for my years of learning in India.
“Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart……”
