Product description

Review

"Smooth and accurate, this translation of the Gheranda Samhita is a very welcome addition to recent work on Yoga."
--George Cardona, University of Pennsylvania

"Mallinson's translation of the Gheranda Samhita includes the Sanskrit Devanagari script paired with clear, succinct English verses. The translation is lucid, making the threads of the teaching easy to understand. . . . For illumination, Mallinson includes a collection of full-page photographs demonstrating the asana or mudra as described in the text. These photos are an asset to this version. . . . This new translation of the Gheranda Samhita is invaluable for students seeking an accessible entry into the written tradition of Yoga practice."
--Felicia M. Tomasko, LA YOGA Magazine

"A first-rate primary source for anyone seeking to better understand the teachings and postures of Yoga."
--Midwest Book Review
