DetailsWritten almost two millennia ago, Patanjalis work focuses on how to attain the direct experience and realization of the purusa: the innermost individual self, or soul.

BRYANT received his PhD in Indology from Columbia University. He is a professor of Hindu religion and philosophy at Rutgers University, and also teaches workshops on the yoga sutras and other Hindu texts in yoga communities around the world.
