In the Yoga Sutras, Patanjali prescribes adherence to eight "limbs" or steps to quiet the mind and achieve the sacred state ofkaivalya.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). InThe Wisdom of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras,noted scholar and longtime practitioner Ravi Ravindra offers a fresh, direct translation of Patanjali’s text.
