The prime source for my study of yoga psychology was the recently published "The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali" by Dr. Edwin Bryant, North Point Press, which is not only a translation of the Yoga Sutras, but is a translation and commentary on all the major commentators on the Yoga Sutras as well. I began this paper before the book was officially published, so I would like to personally thank Professor Bryant for sharing with me, in advance, some excerpts of his work.

In the following excerpt from his forthcoming book, a translation and extensive commentary on Patanjali's Yoga-sutras (see publication information below), Dr. Edwin Bryant examines the classical commentaries on this section of text while providing his own insights.
Edwin Bryant is a professor of religious studies at Rutgers University, specializing in Hinduism. He is also a longtime practitioner and scholar of yoga and various forms of bhakti, and conducts workshops at yoga centers throughout America. I was fortunate to be a student of Edwin's during my time at Rutgers, and I feel still more fortunate to count him as a friend. He has always struck me as a model of frank, objective scholarship mixed with sympathetic involvement and care for the subjects of his inquiry. We are grateful that he has been kind enough to share parts of his study of the Yoga-shastras with us.
