Yoga Sutras of Patanjali

Yoga philosophy of Patañjali, by Swami Hariharananda

This translation, by Swami Hariharananda, has been on my shelf for decades and has a fabulous Preface, rare for its honesty and humor:

To catch the mind and keep it still,
Is no small problem for my porous will;
As many times as I shut it down,
Unceasing thoughts on me rebound

In youth I tried through alcohol,
To ease my stress and cool my gall;
In later years I turned to grass
The effects were good – but did not last.

At last with fading hopes I turned,
To Eastern paths, and my soul yearned
To scale the mystic heights of bliss.
Alas, no easy method this.

And now with age and turmoil weary,
All that’s left me is this query;
Will heart break or mind implode,
Before my vrittis do nirode*.

- Swami Shankarananda

*Patanjali’s second sutra: Yogash chitta vritti-nirodhah, “Yoga is the stilling of the modifications of the mind.”
