So excellent to have this new content, James! I love the refresher/intro to the Patanjala Darshana, and really loved the translation and analysis of the Vande Gurunam. I really appreciate the pdf files. Just beautifully formatted - and so useful! Can't wait to use these with students when we are allowed to chant together once more!

Thank you YogaAnytime and is really insightful to hear about the meaning of the opening invocations!  As a yoga student I have chanted the opening mantra countless times but have spent little time and thought on the so very powerful messages, that inspire awe.  And I havent' decided if they evoke a little bit of fear, or is that just wonder?  Looking foward to continuing, with gratitude !

Hi Caroline and Kate, great to know you are enjoying this new material.
Lighthouse - shows the way and protects a variety of ships, so the Sutra shows they way and protects the multitude and variety of audience...I like that a lot!!
