Generations of knowledge
The scriptures of yoga contain the essence of experiences made by generations of great yoga masters. They were passed on by oral tradition for many centuries until they finally appeared in written form.
Most yoga scriptures consist of short verses in Sanskrit with a commentary to explain them. What is remarkable is that every generation of yoga masters composes new commentaries to address the needs of the times and evolutionary level of the students.
