Sati: Yoga & Philosophy

Patanjali Did Not Create Yoga

Today’s Teaching:

Patanjali did not create Yoga.

He was the systemizer and compiler of select information relaying to Yoga practice that prevaded the scene during his time in India. There were a plethora of other yogic practices and philosophies prior to and at the time of Patanjali. Yet, due to his written effort and largely due to Vyasa’s commentary (which is largely regarded as indisputable) the Sutras of Patanjali remains the philosophical & practical standard for Yoga by which we measure all other schools against.
