In the light of the Buddha’s Teaching. By S.N. Tandon. Siddhartha Gotama the Buddha, who lived in the 6th century B.C., preceded Patanjali by a few centuries. While Patanjali, the author of the Yoga-Sutras, could draw upon the oral as well as the living tradition of the Buddha's teaching, which were extant in his time, his commentators and sub-commentators remained ignorant of both. This fact itself seems to have resulted in inadequate — and, at times, uncalled for — interpretations being offered by these commentators while explaining the Yoga-Sutras. The flaw can be rectified by attempting a re-appraisal of the Yoga-Sutras in the light of the Buddha's teaching as enshrined in the Pali Canon. --from the Preface, by S.N. Tandon. Pali and Sanskrit in both Roman and Devanagari scripts; Yoga-Sutra text included; extensive footnotes; bibliography..
