8vo. Softcover. 163pp. Very good. ex-library. The Authentic Yoga makes a fresh inquiry into the understanding of yoga as it is presented in Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. Why antoher book on this subject: Because no one has yet given a precise answer to the question 'What is Yoga?' The author argues that Patanjali indicates the anbswer in the very title of his original text Yoga Darsanam. That is, that Yoga is a Darsana - a way of approaching reality based on a unique method of enquiry into the nature and structure of life. The commentaries and notes that follow each set of verses (or rules) continue this line of argument until the point is reached where the author can say "This is where Yoga ends and a new mind begins' - in other words we become 'enlightened' which is the goal of all serious students of yoga.
