The Yoga Stras of Patajali are Indian stras (aphorisms) that constitute the foundational text of Rja yoga. Yoga is one of the six orthodox stika schools of Hindu philosophy, which, according to the Yogatattva Upanishad, is divided into four forms Mantrayoga, Layayoga, Hathayoga and Rjayoga[ the last of which is the highest (or royal) practice.
Although the Yoga Sutras have become the most important text of Yoga, the opinion of most scholars is that Patajali was not the creator of Yoga, which existed well before him, but merely a great expounder

Patanjali is regarded as a divine incarnation of the serpent Anantha, who is revered as the supporter of the whole universe. He is the Adhisesha of Lord Mahavishnu.

It is believed that on instructions from a great teacher, Patanjali identified all the teachings in the Vedas about the mind and presented them in a precise and organized form called yoga.

According to Patanjali, one can attain this union by controlling and eliminating the ever- arising vrittis or modifications of the mind. He also suggests that the mind, in turn, can be controlled through the right kind of discipline and training.

Patanjali says that there are basic obstacles pervading the mind that are not conducive to yoga practice. He divides these obstacles into two groups:

1. Antarayas (intruders in the path of yoga)
2. Viksepasahabhuvah (co-existing with mental distraction) ...more
