About Patanjali Patriarch of Yoga


Patanjali, The Patriarch of Yoga

About 300 BC, the great sage of India, Patanjali, created the Yoga Sutra. Only on this basis did Indian yoga really take shape, and the yoga practice was officially established as an eight-branch system. Patanjali is a saint of great significance to yoga. He wrote the Yoga Sutra, which endowed all the theories and knowledge of yoga to form a complete theoretical and practical system. In this book, he explained the definition of yoga, the content of yoga, the changes that yoga brings to the body, and so on. 

Before Patanjali, yoga had a long practice period, but no one gave a systematic explanation of yoga. Patanjali created a holistic yoga system. So Patanjali is revered as the ancestor of yoga.


The ancestor of Yoga: The statue of Patanjali In the world of yoga, Patanjali is unparalleled. He talked to Buddha, Krishna, Christ, Mahavira, Mohammed or Chalatuste. In the same way, they are all enlightened saints. As far as the world of yoga is concerned, Patanjali is the greatest name. This person is rare. No other name can be compared with Patanjali. For the first time in the history of mankind, yoga has been brought to a scientific state. He has made religion a science of pure laws, and faith is not needed.

The Eight Branches of Patanjali recorded in the Yoga Sutra:


  1.  Yamas: refers to external control, the moral commandments of the universe.
  2.  Niyamas: refers to internal control, self-purification through self-discipline.
  3.  Asanas: refers to yoga postures, also known as body turning.
  4.  Pranayama: refers to breathing rhythmically and controlling exhalation, also called interest rate adjustment.
  5.  Pratyahara: The release of the spirit from the enslavement of sensations and external things means that the sensation disappears and it controls the heart.
  6.  Dharana: Concentrate and pay attention.
  7.  Dhyana: Meditation.
  8.  Samadhi: The superconsciousness from meditation is all concentrated in the soul and unites with the universe.

Yoga Founder and Patriarch Patanjali Sutras

Briefly describe the relationship between Patangali and King Yoga?

Yoga, originally a Chinese transliteration of Sanskrit yoga, originally meant "unity," "connection," and "combination". That's what the Chinese call "the union of heaven and man." 

In ancient times, Eastern and Western cultures had the concept that the great ego (the mother of the universe, the universe, and all things) and the ego (the human, the true ego, and the small universe) wanted to be one. This is the "state" reached through practice. Therefore, the term "yoga" refers to the "realm" where the Brahman is one, which is the sublimation of the search of the body, mind, and spirit, rather than any action. This realm is the thirst for hope of many seekers, the door to liberation. 

The so-called insightfulness makes it easy for people to comprehend the true self and the truth in tranquility.

Meditation is of course an important subject: "Yoga's Theory of the Earth" translated by Master Tang Xuanzhang refers to the gradual gradual meditation Realm (land) of development.

 As long as we look through the slightly larger dictionaries, we will find the original meaning of the word yoga, which is far from what people have heard today. 

The philosophy of yoga and its practices have a profound impact on Buddhism, Jainism and Hinduism.
