One of the greatest contributions of legendary Yogi, T Krishnamacharya and his son and student, the world-renowned Yoga Master, TKV Desikachar has been the presentation of this entire text, with the words of each sutra split up to make it easier for students to learn to read and recite the text. For the sake of uniformity among students of this teaching tradition, TKV Desikachar, in consultation with T Krishnamacharya, notated the text in a specific manner. It is this System of notation that is faithfully followed in this presentation of the Yogasutra. For the benefit of the reader, the text of the Yogasutra has been given in Samskrt along with the Roman transliteration.As a value addition the texts of three hymns, one traditional with author unknown and the other two attributed to Sage Vyasa and King Bhoja, in praise of Patanjali, are also given along with T Krishnamacharya's "Adisesa Astakam" a beautiful poem in eight verses addressed as an ode to Adisesa, whose incarnation Patanjali is believed to be.
