While studying Sanskrit and 10th Century Tibetan in India, the author studied the Patanjali Yoga Sutras. He saw in them affinities associated with Pythagoras that seemed closer than mere coincidence. Based on geographic consonant transitions in proper names from West to East of the Indus river he applied these changes to 'Pythagoras' and there appeared a strong argument in favor of concluding that 'Patanjali' is a phonetic transition from 'Pythagoras'. How this could occur is explained in the section on Historical Arguments. This Pythagorean intensification of feeling and thought lit the genius that was Ancient Greece. The author provides one of the most complete and accurate English translations of the Yoga Sutras ever published.
