What’s this about?

This little spot on the internet is where I am posting my Yoga Sutra Cards, my study tools. I began learning about Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra as part of a yoga study group at a nearby Viniyoga studio. As I considered the content of the Yoga Sutra and integrated it into my daily life, I began to notice positive changes result. Encouraged, I continued the study…

These cards are written to concisely capture a few things I wanted to commit to memory – like flash cards – for each sutra:

  • Sanskrit written in characters I recognize
  • chanting notation
  • translation of each of the Sanskrit words
  • one-sentence summary
  • a relevant yogic action to take

Each of the cards has its own page here. On the pages, I have compiled quotes from the Yoga Sutra discourse on any given sutra. I don’t have anything to add to this; I feel more like listening. And I also feel like sharing what I hear. So here they are, my notes.

Ever a student, I plan to enroll in a graduate program in Philosophy after I retire. This will probably end up being part of a dissertation. 🙂 In the meantime, progress is slow-going what with all of the distractions of a householder’s lifestyle.

Namaste ~ Michelle

      Perhaps before I die… It’s slow going and practice is not as persistent as I would like 🙂 Still learning, on my own time….
