Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras teach restraint, wise action, and morality as a path to “The Supreme Lord”. Written between 100 BCE and 500 BE, this ancient Hindu text espouses the eight limbs of yoga for realizing the divine. Sanskrit translations tend to be literal and perplexing. Poet and Zen Priest Tai Sheridan's book gives the reader an immediate intimacy between Patanjali and their experience.
