Fondement du yoga en Inde comme en Occident, ce texte magistral (le yoga-sutra) est ici exposé dans toute sa richesse. Après avoir montré l. a. position du yoga de Patanjali dans l. a. spiritualité de l'Inde (Samkhya, Vedanta) et ses liens avec le bouddhisme, Alain Delaye commente en profondeur le texte en s'appuyant sur de nombreux commentaires traditionnels ou plus modernes (Vimala Thakar, Michel angot).
