About the Author
RAM BHAKT lived and studied the teachings of Swami Satchidananda at Yogaville Ashram and has studied Patanjali for several years. As the founder of the Long Beach School of Yoga, Ram has trained over one hundred teachers and has seen the impact yogic wisdom has on the lives of countless others.
"The Yoga Sutras of the Rishi Patanjali is the key text of Yoga practice through the eight limbs of Yoga. Though widely used it is seldom properly understood. It aims to harmonize body and mind in order to go beyond body and mind to our true Self, or Purusha, that is pure Consciousness. Ram Bhakt in his book, A Seeker's Guide to the Yoga Sutras, shares a compelling personal journey into the depths of this vast yogic system of Self-realization. An excellent point of access for those wishing to enter into the universe of Yoga, which ultimately holds the entire universe within our own awareness."—David Frawley, Author of Yoga and Ayurveda and Director of American Institute of Vedic Studies
