The Wisdom of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras: A New Translation and Guide by Ravi Ravindra
Some of yoga’s most important writings, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras have remained relevant for 2,300 years because of their wisdom and inspiration. In the Yoga Sutras, Patanjali prescribes adherence to eight "limbs" or steps to quiet the mind and achieve the sacred state of kaivalya. Spread throughout are Patanjali’s 196 aphorisms, found in each of the book's four chapters: “Samadhi Pada” (blissful state where the yogi is absorbed into the One), “Sadhana Pada” (practice or discipline), “Vibhuti Pada” (power or manifestation), and “Kaivalya Pada” (liberation). In The Wisdom of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, noted scholar and longtime practitioner Ravi Ravindra offers a fresh, direct translation of Patanjali’s text. Ravindra’s enriching, extensive commentary and his spiritual exercises make this book an integral part of daily practice.

Review: The Wisdom of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras: A New Translation and Guide by Ravi RavindraUser Review - Goodreads
This is an AMAZING book. I am reading it for the third time. It is different each time as there is always something more or different to understand. I HIGHLY recommend this to yogis if they want to deepen their understanding of yoga. Keep in mind that it is a very challenging book to read.
