Science of Yoga - I. K. Taimni
The most famous exponent, and in fact, the creator of the yogic discipline, was Patanjali, the great Indian philosopher and spiritual leader. Patanjali's Yoga-Sutras have evolved into one of the six classical schools of Indian philosophy and are the most quoted and most adopted of any yogic system. Celebrated author I. K. Taimni, who was a professor at Allahabad University in India, is eminently suited to interpret the Yoga-Sutras of Patanjali, having studied, practiced and taught yoga throughout his life. ." . . a deeply committed exposition of Yoga as the way to liberation from the sequence of incarnations . . . free from the usual deficiencies and incompetence of most of the popular literature propagating Yoga, and can well be recommended to students as a valuable introductory reading on the subject."--Philosophy, East and West.
