ABOUT THIS BOOK:
The Yoga Sutras are of ancient origin, first reduced to writing by Patanjali, who is considered the founder of the Raja Yoga School. Control of the mind and its illumination by the soul are brought about through the practice of Raja Yoga. This volume is a paraphrase, with commentary, of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.(Publisher)

Alice Ann Bailey (1880-1949) was one of the first people to use the term "New Age." She was a pioneer on the topic of theosophy, and wrote more than 24 books on subjects including sprituality, systems of esoteric thought, Christianity, healing, and ideas for a unified society. Bailey claimed that she was in telepathic communication with a "Master of Wisdom," who dictated the writings to her. Her work held wide influence in many areas such as the New Age movement, neopaganism, women in religion, psychotherapy and healing, and UFO groups. Good +. Item #10919
