Why 'Patanjali' Yoga Sutras?
Do you believe that everything happens for a reason? That every minutest thing has a reason behind its existence? That every ‘why’ has an answer and every answer can be framed in a ‘why’? If yes, then did you wonder why are the Yoga sutras titled Patanjali? You may think because Rishi Patanjali is the founder of the Yoga sutras. But, although Rishi Patanjali did gather and combine the scattered knowledge in order to codify the Yoga sutras, he is not the founder of the sutras. So then back to, why the title Patanjali? You could go about doing your research in order to find out why or you could simply watch and listen to this video clip extracted from the talk given on International Yoga Day (Delhi, 2015) by revered master Anandmurti Gurumaa, who also tells us who the first Guru of Yoga is.
