    What always surprises me about Swami Vivekananda is the way he explains the possibility of communicating and sending energy without cables. He died on 1902, and his scientific explanations were ahead of his time. He was acquainted with tesla, and it's interesting to note that tesla used sanskrit terms when describing matter and energy. I'm not sure how true are the stories of Vivekananda predicting that he would leave his body at his 30's. But I am sure he was a wise man that was way ahead of his What always surprises me about Swami Vivekananda is the way he explains the possibility of communicating and sending energy without cables.

His commentary on the Yoga Sutras is logical, concise and clear. However, some of his vocabulary can be outdated and I have read better translations of the sutras. Nevertheless, his commentary is one of the best, and it is a quick read that someone interested in Raja yoga should go through.

    I read it slowly, along with lectures by Swami Pitambarananda of Ramkrishna Order. His sessions are recorded and posted here - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list... But I find the it bit difficult to understand. There are lot of references to Upanishada and Gita, I haven't read either of them. Also I don't have any background of Sanskrit, that makes it difficult. So probably I will read it again with sutra-by-sutra, with meaning, and commentary by couple of other scholars and Sadhak.

    Liberation can be achieved by adopting the principles of Spiritual Science. Patanjali Yogasutras are hereby commented and explained in a lucid and scientific manner by a Self Realised Master, the legendary Swamy Vivekananda. The commentary reaches and appeals to a rational mind with out a dichotomy. This book is like a guide and reference to any serious student of Spiritual Science as I believe.I

    Appeal to the logical minded The first half of the book appeals to folks who have their mind wired to follow logic, it is well written. The latter part of the book was a bit challenging to follow. A great start up book to pursue the Sankhya way.

    Brilliant book. Won't be an easy read if you do not have any background in Yogic or Sankhya philosophy. Worth reading for countless little nuggets of wisdom spread throughout the book.

    I started this book post reading The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali: Commentary on the Raja Yoga Sutras by Sri Swami Satchidananda. The book covers the various aphorisms of Patanjali in detaill. Some passages in the book sounded like esoteric philosophical commentaries. My amateurish understanding of Raja Yoga expanded & I understood I need to go so much beyond merely the practice of Hatha Yoga.

    I picked up this book while backpacking in Rishikesh. Being the spiritual capital of the world, it was an immensely rich experience to read this book. But but but, this book came across as something which took me a while to start understanding. I guess I need to read this book atleast 5 more time to understand metaphysics. To sum up, I would say, "Beyond Intellect"
