Sutra Discussion Sunday November 17

We’ll be meeting at 10:00-11:30 on Sunday November 17 in the “blue room” at YiY. Bring your translations as usual.

We plan to discuss sutras 2.51 and 2.52, the third and fourth sutra about the fourth limb of Ashtanga Yoga, pranayama:

Sutra 2.51: bahya abhyantara vishaya akshepi chaturthah
Then the breath transcends the level of consciousness. 

Sutra 2.52: tatah kshiyate prakasha avaranam
The regular practice of pranayama reduces the obstacles that inhibit clear perception. 

Translation and interpretation by TKV Desikachar
