The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali by Patanjali explores yoga fundamentals, one of the six orthodox philosophies of the Hindu religion, and is revered as one of the greatest texts of the practice of yoga.

the book is ancient and the translation sounds adequate. the narrator makes no effort to pronounce the words properly and liberally uses the fake annoying "shtr" pronunciation for the "str" syllable. pathetic.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The downloadable PDF is integral to using this audiobook. Extremely frustrating that it is incomplete and missing much of what we are asked to look up. Even more frustrating is that there is no way to contact Ms. Handclow from her website to ask for the full version.

Other than that, this is an incredibly eye opening book.
