The Sage Patanjali

PatanjaliThe Sage Patanjali was the Guru who put the Yoga Sutras in written, some time between 400 BCE and 200 AD, compiling texts that are documented up to 5000 years back.

According to the interpretation of the Modern History, this was the time when whole world was living in caves and jungles. The highly developed people of Bharat (situated where nowadays there is India) were revealing the secrets of creation so scientifically that till today the modern sciences are copying from them and lots is not yet understood.

Yoga Sutras are 196 Indian sutras (poems, aphorisms) that constitute the foundational text of Ashtanga Yoga, also called Raja Yoga. Here the Ashtanga refers to Eight Limbs of Yoga by Patanjali, not the ashtanga (vinyasa) yoga developed by K. Pattabi Jois in the 1940s.
