Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
Here begins the authoritative instruction on Yoga.
The first sutra introduces the subject matter, as the oral tradition requires. In the convention of ancient Sanskrit literature, the first word, atha, carries the connotation of a prayer, both for an auspicious beginning and a successful conclusion to the work that follows.
Patanjali indicates that while the subject matter is of ancient origin and he is not the originator, he has studied it to an appropriate depth under his own teacher and is now competent to share his understanding with his disciples. His style will be in a manner suitable for them to transmit it in turn directly to their disciples through the traditional oral methods.
“Mere philosophy will not satisfy us. We cannot reach the goal by mere words alone. Without practice, nothing can be achieved.”
