Sample text

Together, these factors suggest that the Tattvasamasasutra dates from the fourteenth century, while the SaÅkhyasutra is a product of either the late fourteenth or early fifteenth century. The Tattvasamasasutra is a slender composition, comprising a mere twenty-five sutras, the last of which is commonly thought to have been added by the unknown author of the commentary called the Kramadipika (c. late fourteenth century). The sutras are highly condensed, most of them consisting of just two or three words.

KHYA AND YOGA (or ‘Vedavyasa’). Such an attribution is really equivalent to saying that we have no idea who composed the work, since vyasa literally means ‘arranger’ or ‘compiler’ (and, according to V. Bharati (2001: lii), ‘analysis’ as well). The term has accumulated a somewhat overburdening weight of legendary associations, for it is to Vyasa that the authorship of some of India’s most vaunted religious and mythological works has been ascribed, including no less than the Vedas, the Mahabharata, the Purajas, and the Brahmasutra.

Estimates of its date gravitate towards the fifth and sixth centuries CE. Opinions on how useful the Yogabhasya is in assisting our comprehension of the Yogasutra vary widely. At one extreme there is the view that Vyasa is a ‘great Yoga authority’, whose commentary ‘illuminates our understanding of Patañjali’s thought’ (Whicher 1998: 2, 28).
