Patanjali Yoga Sutras

Sage Patanjali wrote 196 sanskrit verses (aphorisms) to attain wisdom and for self-realization through yoga around 400 C.E. Considered as the basis of yoga philosophy, these sutras are distributed into four padas (chapters): Samadhi, Sadhana, Vibhuti, and Kaivalya. At the core, these sutras aim to help people explore, understand and implement yoga.
Samadhi Padas which has 51 sutras, discusses the meaning of yoga and focuses mainly on themes of enlightenment, concentration, and meditation.

Sadhana Padas talks about the means of achieving a yogic state with 55 sutras. In this pada, you are introduced to the eight limbs of yoga— Yama (Five principles of ethics), Niyama (Five principles of conduct & discipline), Asana (Physical practice of yoga), Pranayama (Breath regulation), Pratyahara (Sensory withdrawal), Dharana (Concentration), Dhyana (Meditation) and Samadhi (Self-realization)

Vibhuti Padas consists of 56 sutras which talks about the benefits of practicing yoga regularly. Here you will deeply understand the final two limbs of yoga – Dhyana and Samadhi.

Kaivalya Padas has 34 sutras that talk about liberation and freedom from suffering. Here, the text explores the ultimate goals of yoga and provides thoughtful insight on the unconditional, absolute liberation yoga provides.
