I'm too lazy to learn Sansript so a few years back I read 6 different English translations of  Panatanjali's Sutras and  commentairies on them.

The one that made the most sense to me was by Osho (Bagwan Shree Rashneesh),

 

Which version do you have?

 

At the time I was interested in the Siddhis--the special abilities like walking on water, making stuff disappear, being in

several locations simultaneously etc.

 

If  I recall correctly,  book 4 of the Sutras outlines meditations for accomplishing all these miraculous powers. But then Pantanjali warns about getting stuck in the Siddhis as they are merely side effects and will not get you to self-realization.

 

I then went on to read about 50 books by Osho and forgot about Pantanjali.

 

I believe Pantanhali is the Grandaddy of all Yoga.

 

Have fun.

 

Love, B
