I think this is the 3rd time I've gone through these wonderful lectures on the Yoga Darshana of Patanjali. Such a wonderful resource. I wonder... if there is any chance of getting James to discourse on the Sadhana Pada?

Beautiful song to finish this long and very deep, very beautiful discussion of Samadhi Pada. Sutra study can become very cerebral - sorting out the Sanskrit, trying to apprehend very deep philosophy - and the song brings it back into the realm of the heart (where it was centered all along!). Many thanks, once again, for this offering.

Thank you so much James for an incredible course - everything was clearly explained, accessible, beaufitully presented, giving me a solid, robust grounding in Chapter One of the Yoga sūtra-s, giving me hope and encouragement that I can practice at my level, patiently, lovingly, that I am okay using the supports I need / use, but also inspiring me to go a little beyong my habitual grooves.  The questions posed in 1.51 are the ones I will take to my heart, as they represent a summation of what we can do here and now as human beings.  I hope YogaAnytime will put on Chapter 2 soon so we can explore more jewels, in depth of the Yoga sūtra-s. Namaste !

Caroline S thank you for your feedback Caroline, and I apologise for not responding to more of your comments as I have been largely offline these last six weeks. Great to know that you have found this course useful and supportive, and I think you will be pleased to hear that chapter two is coming soon! If there are any questions/threads I have missed that you are still curious about, please write again and I can do my best to respond more promptly these coming weeks.
