14 editions published between 1952 and 2000 in English and Sanskrit and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Yoga Sutra, dating from about the third century A.D., distills the essentials of a complex system of physical and spiritual discipline into 200 brief aphorisms. It does not propose to offer new knowledge, but rather a new perspective on the nature of knowing. As a method of achieving insight, the discipline of yoga is far from mystical ecstasy or ritual trance. Its goal is a contemplative intensity that can unbind the constraints of everyday experience, and that goal helps explain Americans' growing interest in yoga in recent years. This interest has been most widely expressed in the physical dimension of yoga--the postures known as hatha-yoga--but attention is increasingly being directed at the philosophy and psychology that define the discipline. This centuries-old text offers powerful techniques for countering private mental chaos and moral confusion.--From publisher description
Christianity contrasted with Hindū philosophy: an essay, in five books, Sanskrit and English: with practical suggestions tendered to the missionary among the Hindūs by James Robert Ballantyne( Book )

19 editions published between 1859 and 2013 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While living in India for sixteen years, James Robert Ballantyne (1813-64) taught oriental languages to Indian pupils and became fascinated by Hindu philosophy, seeking to harmonise it with the Western tradition. He produced grammars of Hindi, Sanskrit and Persian, translations of Indian linguistics, and a science primer in English and Sanskrit (also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection). Intended for the Tyro missionary and published in 1859, this work offers a summary of Hinduism (covering the Nyaya, Sankhya and Vedanta schools) and argues for the truth of Christianity, while acknowledging certain shared ideas. It contains a facing Sanskrit translation (with redactions of parts considered to be of no importance to 'those whom the missionary has to teach'). A valuable primary source for scholars of orientalism, this work helps to illuminate the religious dimensions of British imperialism

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali by Patañjali( Book )

18 editions published between 1952 and 2010 in English and Sanskrit and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Yoga Sutras were cast in their present form in India around the third century B.C. Yoga is from the Sanskrit root meaning "union," and a sutra is a thread or aphoristic verse. The basic questions "Who am I?" "Where am I going?" "What is the purpose of life?" are asked by each new generation, and Patanjali's answers form one of the oldest and most vibrant spiritual texts in the world. He explains what yoga is, how it works, and exactly how to purify the mind and let it settle into absolute stillness. This stillness is our own Self. It is the indispensable ground for Enlightenment, which is the ultimate goal of all our aspirations." "Alistair Shearer's introduction and translation, fully preserving Patanjali's style, bring these ancient but vital teachings to those who seek the path of self-knowledge today."--Jacket
