The first single, reliable collection of primary material from the source traditions of yoga
 
Despite the immense popularity of yoga today, there is surprisingly little knowledge of its roots among practitioners. This book brings together, for the first time, the core teachings of yoga in the words of their authors, rather than in the secondary versions of modern interpreters. Including key passages from the Upanishads, the Buddhist and Jaina traditions, the yoga sections of the Indian Tantras, and many texts that are being critically translated for the first time, Roots of Yoga provides a comprehensive and immediate insight into the essential texts of the Indian traditions of yoga. This book is a first stop for anyone wishing to learn more than they are told at their yoga class, and an indispensable resource for serious yoga practitioners and teachers.

Mark Singleton is a long-term research fellow at the American Institute of Indian Studies and teaches at St. John's College in Santa Fe, New Mexico. His publications include Yoga Body: The Origins of Modern Posture Practice.
 
James Mallinson is a lecturer in Sanskrit and Classical and Indian Studies at SOAS, University of London. He has published eight books, all of which are editions and translations of Sanskrit yoga texts, epic tales, and poetry. His recent work has used philological study of Sanskrit texts, ethnography, and art history to explore the history of yoga and yogis.

“Forget everything you thought you knew about yoga history . . . With new critical translations of over 100 little-known yoga texts dating from 1000 BCE to the 19th century, threaded together with clear and steady-as-she-goes commentary, these authors have charted the deep. Their endlessly diverse sources—translated from Sanskrit (of course) but also Tibetan, Arabic, Persian, Bengali, Tamil, Pali, Kashmiri, and early forms of Marathi and Hindi—explode the available resources for everyday practitioners.” —Yoga Journal

“Momentous . . . we can expect original ideas and substantial insights.” —Georg Feuerstein, author of The Yoga Tradition

“With all the myth and misinformation in the Yogasphere, this research and the resulting book will be a much needed resource for yogis, practitioners, teachers, and scholars.” —Ganga White, author of Yoga Beyond Belief

“Assembling in translation an unprecedented array of sources, many of which have been unknown or neglected, this anthology will be an indispensable companion for all interested in yoga, both scholars and practitioners.” —Alexis G. J. S. Sanderson, University of Oxford
