Among all the six darsanas, Yoga stands distinct because of its practical applicability. Vedas, Upanisads, Smrtis, Puranas as well as Epics all give due importance to Yoga system. The Yoga system is a practical Science dealing with the functioning and control of mind. It understands the role of inner-sense-organ (citta) in the achievement of liberation. It also understands the role of physical body in the path of self-realization and therefore prescribes some methods for its purification. Thus, the Yoga darsana can be stated to be the perfect science touching all the important aspects of human life.Patanjali's Yoga Sutra is the most authentic text on Yoga available to us now. It primarily deals with the Yoga system. Yogasiddhantacandrika is an important commentary by Narayantirtha which is regarded as an ambitious work that tries to put Yoga in the highest place among various means of realising the self, synthesising various kinds of Yoga into the eight-fold yoga of the Yogasutra. This commentary on Yoga system describes in depth the definition of Yoga, Yoga system, fifteen varieties of Yoga and various doctrines of Yoga system. The present Book makes a sincere attempt to understand Narayantirtha's commentary "Yogasiddhantacandrika" and to present its contribution to the understanding of the Yogasutra. Printed Pages: 312.
