Yoga is hugely popular around the world today, yet until now little has been known of its roots. This book collects, for the first time, core teachings of yoga in their original form, translated and edited by two of the world’s foremost scholars of the subject. It includes a wide range of texts from different schools of yoga, languages, and eras, with many pieces in scholarly translation for the first time.
“Forget everything you thought you knew about yoga history . . . With new critical translations of over 100 little-known yoga texts dating from 1000 BCE to the 19th century, threaded together with clear and steady-as-she-goes commentary, these authors have charted the deep. Their endlessly diverse sources - translated from Sanskrit (of course) but also Tibetan, Arabic, Persian, Bengali, Tamil, Pali, Kashmiri, and early forms of Marathi and Hindi - explode the available resources for everyday practitioners.” - Yoga Journal
“Momentous . . . we can expect original ideas and substantial insights.” - Georg Feuerstein, author of The Yoga Tradition
“With all the myth and misinformation in the Yogasphere, this research and the resulting book will be a much-needed resource for yogis, practitioners, teachers, and scholars.” - Ganga White, author of YogaBeyond Belief
“Assembling in translation an unprecedented array of sources, many of which have been unknown or neglected, this anthology will be an indispensable companion for all interested in yoga, both scholars, and practitioners.” - Alexis G. J. S. Sanderson, University of Oxford
