The Yoga Sutras of Patañjali by Edwin Bryant: A New Edition,
Translation, and Commentary Paperback.***
A landmark new translation and edition
Written almost two millennia ago, Patañjali's work focuses on how to
attain the direct experience and realization of the purusa: the
innermost individual self, or soul. As the classical treatise on the
Hindu understanding of mind and consciousness and on the technique of
meditation, it has exerted immense influence over the religious
practices of Hinduism in India and, more recently, in the West.
Edwin F. Bryant's translation is clear, direct, and exact. Each sutra is
presented as Sanskrit text, transliteration, and precise English
translation, and is followed by Bryant's authoritative commentary, which
is grounded in the classical understanding of yoga and conveys the
meaning and depth of the su-tras in a user-friendly manner for a Western
readership without compromising scholarly rigor or traditional
authenticity. In addition, Bryant presents insights drawn from the
primary traditional commentaries on the sutras written over the last
millennium and a half.

Yoga Chumballs (doughnuts) for the practice of Iyengar yoga. Set includes 2 XL(8 inch), 2 L(7 inch), 2 M (5 inches), 2 S (4 inches), 2 XS (3 inches). These doughnut shaped props, translated to 'Chumbal' in Marathi (a language spoken in Maharashtra, Puna) were first introduced by BKS Iyengar in the 2013 calendar 'body is my first prop'. Chumbals are traditionally used to hold a vessel of water on the head and to provide a gentle cushioning from the sharp contact of the metal. But BKS Iyengar's revelation means they are now frequently used in Iyengar Yoga practice to support the sitting bones and pelvis in Baddha Konasana and other seated postures.
