Yoga is now internationally an integral part of our health-conscious cultural landscape. While Yoga is seen and practiced mostly as a body exercise program, the interest in the philosophical and spiritual dimension of Yoga is growing.

This book takes us step by step into a deeper understanding of the essence and origins of Yoga. Osho introduces and unlocks Patanjali’s ancient sutras, revealing how contemporary this ancient message truly is. Surprisingly, the mind even more than the body is the focus of Patanjali’s teaching. He says: “Yoga is the cessation of mind.”

As Osho says: “This is the definition of Yoga, the best definition. Yoga has been defined in many ways, but Patanjali’s is the most scientific. He says: Yoga is the cessation of mind.

“What is the mind? What is the mind doing there? What is it? Ordinarily we think that mind is something substantial there, inside the head. Patanjali doesn’t agree, and no one who has ever known the inside of the mind will agree. Modern science also doesn’t agree. Mind is not something substantial inside the head. Mind is just a function, just an activity.”
