PATAñJALI (Sanskrit : पतञ्जलि) is a proper Indian name. Several important ancient Sanskrit works are ascribed to one or more authors of this name, and a great deal of scholarship has been devoted over the last century or so to the issue of disambiguation.

Amongst the more important authors called Patañjali are:

* The author of the Mahābhāṣya , an ancient treatise on Sanskrit grammar and linguistics, based on the Aṣṭādhyāyī
Aṣṭādhyāyī
of Pāṇini
Pāṇini
. This Patañjali's life is dated to mid 2nd century BCE by both Western and Indian scholars. This text was titled as a bhasya or "commentary" on Katyayana-Panini's work by Patanjali, but is so revered in the Hindu traditions that it is widely known simply as Maha-bhasya or "Great commentary". So vigorous, well reasoned and vast is his text, that this Patanjali
Patanjali
has been the authority as the last grammarian of classical Sanskrit for 2,000 years, with Panini and Katyayana preceding him. Their ideas on structure, grammar and philosophy of language have also influenced scholars in other Indian religions such as Buddhism
Buddhism
and Jainism
Jainism
. * The compiler of the Yoga
Yoga
sūtras , a text on Yoga
Yoga
theory and practice, and a notable scholar of Samkhya
Samkhya
school of Hindu philosophy . He is variously estimated to have lived between 5th century BCE to 4th century CE, with more scholars accepting dates between 2nd and 4th century CE. The Yogasutras is one of the most important texts in the Hindu tradition and the foundation of classical Yoga. It is the Indian Yoga
Yoga
text that was most translated in its medieval era into forty Indian languages. * The author of a medical text called Patanjalatantra. He is cited and this text is quoted in many medieval health sciences-related texts, and Patanjali
Patanjali
is called a medical authority in a number of Sanskrit texts such as Yogaratnakara, Yogaratnasamuccaya and Padarthavijnana. There is a fourth Hindu scholar also named Patanjali, who likely lived in 8th-century CE and wrote a commentary on Charaka Samhita and this text is called Carakavarttika. According to some modern era Indian scholars such as P.V. Sharma, the two medical scholars named Patanjali
Patanjali
may be the same person, but completely different person than the Patanjali
Patanjali
who wrote the Sanskrit grammar classic Mahabhasya. * Patanjali
Patanjali
is one of the 18 siddhars in the Tamil siddha ( Saiva
Saiva
) tradition.

NAME

According to Monier Monier-Williams
Monier Monier-Williams
, the word "Patañjali" is a compound name from "patta" (Sanskrit: पत, "falling, flying") and "añj" (अञ्ज्, "honor, celebrate, beautiful") or "añjali" (अञ्जलि, "reverence, joining palms of the hand").

LIFE

Louis Renou was among the many scholars who have suggested that the Patañjali who wrote on Yoga
Yoga
was a different person than the Patanjali who wrote a commentary on Panini's grammar. In 1914, James Wood proposed that they were the same person. In 1922, Surendranath Dasgupta presented a series of arguments to tentatively propose that the famed Grammar text and the Yoga
Yoga
text author may be identical.

The view that these were likely two different authors is generally accepted, but some Western scholars consider them as same.

Some in the Indian tradition have held that one Patañjali wrote treatises on grammar, medicine and yoga. This has been memorialised in a verse by Bhoja at the start of his commentary on the Yogasutras called Rājamārttanda (11th century), and the following verse found in Shivarama's 18th-century text:

योगेन चित्तस्य पदेन वाचां मलं शरीरस्य च वैद्यकेन। योपाकरोत्तं प्रवरं मुनीनां पतञ्जलिं प्राञ्जलिरानतोस्मि॥

English translation: I bow with my hands together to the eminent sage Patañjali, who removed the impurities of the mind through yoga, of speech through grammar, and of the body through medicine.

This tradition is discussed by Meulenbeld who traces this "relatively late" idea back to Bhoja (11th century), who was perhaps influenced by a verse by Bhartṛhari (ca. 5th century) that speaks of an expert in yoga, medicine and grammar who, however, is not named. No known Sanskrit text prior to the 10th century states that the one and the same Patanjali
Patanjali
was behind all the three treatises.

GRAMMAR TRADITION

In the grammatical tradition, Patañjali is believed to have lived in the second century BCE. He wrote a Mahabhasya on Panini's sutras, in a form that quoted the commentary of Kātyāyana 's vārttikas. This is a major influential work on Sanskrit grammar and linguistics. The dating of Patanjali
Patanjali
and his Mahabhasya is established by a combination of evidence, those from the Maurya Empire period, the historical events mentioned in the examples he used to explain his ideas, the chronology of ancient classical Sanskrit texts that respect his teachings, and the mention of his text or his name in ancient Indian literature. Of the three ancient grammarians, the chronological dating of Patanjali
Patanjali
to mid 2nd century BCE is considered as "reasonably accurate" by mainstream scholarship.

The text influenced Buddhist
Buddhist
grammatical literature, as well as memoirs of travellers to India. For example, the Chinese pilgrim I-tsing mentions that the Mahabhasya is studied in India and advanced scholars learn it in three years.

YOGA TRADITION

SELF STUDY

Practice self study, to commune with your chosen divinity. — Patanjali, Yogasutras II.44

In the Yoga
Yoga
tradition, Patañjali is a revered name. This Patañjali's oeuvre comprises the sutras about Yoga
Yoga
(Yogasūtra) and the commentary integral to the sutras, called the Bhāṣya . Some consider the sutras and the Bhaṣya to have had different authors, the commentary being ascribed to "an editor" (Skt. "vyāsa"). According to Phillipp Maas, the same person named Patanjali
Patanjali
composed the sutras and the Bhāṣya commentary.

Radhakrishnan and Moore attribute the text to the grammarian Patañjali, dating it as 2nd century BCE , during the Maurya Empire (322–185 BCE). Maas estimates Patañjali's Yogasutra's date to be about 400 CE, based on tracing the commentaries on it published in the first millennium CE. Edwin Bryant, on the other hand, surveys the major commentators in his translation of the Yoga
Yoga
Sūtras. He states that "most scholars date the text shortly after the turn of the Common Era (circa first to second century), but that it has been placed as early as several centuries before that." Bryant concludes that "A number of scholars have dated the Yoga
Yoga
Sūtras as late as the fourth or fifth century C.E., but these arguments have all been challenged", and late chronology for this Patanjali
Patanjali
and his text are problematic.

TAMIL SAIVITE LEGEND

WORKS

Patañjali – Modern art rendering in Patanjali Yogpeeth , Haridwar

Whether the two works, the Yoga
Yoga
Sutras and the Mahābhāṣya , are by the same author has been the subject of considerable debate. The authorship of the two is first attributed to the same person in Bhojadeva's Rajamartanda, a relatively late (10th century) commentary on the Yoga
Yoga
Sutras, as well as several subsequent texts. As for the texts themselves, the Yoga
Yoga
Sutra
Sutra
iii.44 cites a sutra as that from Patanjali
Patanjali
by name, but this line itself is not from the Mahābhāṣya. This 10th-century legend of single-authorship is doubtful. The literary styles and contents of the Yogasūtras and the Mahābhāṣya are entirely different, and the only work on medicine attributed to Patañjali is lost. Sources of doubt include the lack of cross-references between the texts, and no mutual awareness of each other, unlike other cases of multiple works by (later) Sanskrit authors. Also, some elements in the Yoga
Yoga
Sutras may date from as late as the 4th century AD, but such changes may be due to divergent authorship, or due to later additions which are not atypical in the oral tradition. Most scholars refer to both works as "by Patanjali", without meaning that they are by the same author.

In addition to the Mahābhāṣya and Yoga
Yoga
Sūtras, the 11th-century commentary on Charaka by the Bengali scholar Cakrapāṇidatta, and the 16th-century text Patanjalicarita ascribes to Patañjali a medical text called the Carakapratisaṃskṛtaḥ (now lost) which is apparently a revision (pratisaṃskṛtaḥ) of the medical treatise by Caraka. While there is a short treatise on yoga in the medical work called the Carakasaṃhitā (by Caraka), towards the end of the chapter called śārīrasthāna, it is notable for not bearing much resemblance to the Yoga
Yoga
Sūtras, and in fact presents a form of eightfold yoga that is completely different from that laid out by Patañjali in the Yoga
Yoga
Sūtras and the commentary Yogasūtrabhāṣya.

Sūtras of Patañjali are 196 Indian sutras (aphorisms ) on Yoga
Yoga
. It was the most translated ancient Indian text in the medieval era, having been translated into about forty Indian languages and two non-Indian languages: Old Javanese and Arabic
Arabic
. The text fell into obscurity for nearly 700 years from the 12th to 19th century, and made a comeback in late 19th century due to the efforts of Swami Vivekananda
Vivekananda
and others. It gained prominence again as a comeback classic in the 20th century.

Before the 20th century, history indicates the Indian yoga scene was dominated by other Yoga

texts such as the Bhagavad Gita

MAHāBHāṣYA

Patanjali's Yogasutras

The Mahābhāṣya ("great commentary") of Patañjali on the Aṣṭādhyāyī
Aṣṭādhyāyī
of Pāṇini
Pāṇini
is a major early exposition on Pāṇini, along with the somewhat earlier Varttika by Katyayana . Patanjali
Patanjali
relates to how words and meanings are associated – Patanjali
Patanjali
claims shabdapramâNaH – that the evidentiary value of words is inherent in them, and not derived externally – the word-meaning association is natural. These issues in the word-meaning relation (symbol ) would be elaborated in the Sanskrit linguistic tradition, in debates between the Mimamsa
Mimamsa
, Nyaya
Nyaya
and Buddhist
Buddhist
schools over the next fifteen centuries.

Sphota

Patanjali
Patanjali
also defines an early notion of sphota , which would be elaborated considerably by later Sanskrit linguists like Bhartrihari . In Patanjali, a sphoTa (from sphuT, spurt/burst) is the invariant quality of speech. The noisy element (dhvani, audible part) can be long or short, but the sphoTa remains unaffected by individual speaker differences. Thus, a single letter or 'sound' (varNa) such as k, p or a is an abstraction, distinct from variants produced in actual enunciation. This concept has been linked to the modern notion of phoneme , the minimum distinction that defines semantically distinct sounds. Thus a phoneme is an abstraction for a range of sounds. However, in later writings, especially in Bhartrihari (6th century CE), the notion of sphoTa changes to become more of a mental state, preceding the actual utterance, akin to the lemma .

Patañjali's writings also elaborate some principles of morphology (prakriyā). In the context of elaborating on Pāṇini's aphorisms, he also discusses Kātyāyana 's commentary, which are also aphoristic and sūtra-like; in the later tradition, these were transmitted as embedded in Patañjali's discussion. In general, he defends many positions of Pāṇini
Pāṇini
which were interpreted somewhat differently in Katyayana.

Metaphysics As Grammatical Motivation

Unlike Pāṇini's objectives in the Ashtyadhyayi, which is to distinguish correct forms and meanings from incorrect ones (shabdaunushasana), Patanjali's objectives are more metaphysical. These include the correct recitations of the scriptures (Agama), maintaining the purity of texts (raksha), clarifying ambiguity (asamdeha), and also the pedagogic goal of providing an easier learning mechanism (laghu). This stronger metaphysical bent has also been indicated by some as one of the unifying themes between the Yoga Sutras and the Mahābhāṣya, although a close examination of actual Sanskrit usage by Woods showed no similarities in language or terminology.

The text of the Mahābhāṣya was first critically edited by the 19th-century orientalist Franz Kielhorn, who also developed philological criteria for distinguishing Kātyāyana's "voice" from Patañjali's. Subsequently, a number of other editions have come out, the 1968 text and translation by S.D. Joshi and J.H.F. Roodbergen often being considered definitive. Regrettably, the latter work is incomplete.

Patanjali
Patanjali
also writes with a light touch. For example, his comment on the conflicts between the orthodox Brahminic (Astika) groups, versus the heterodox, nAstika groups ( Buddhism
Buddhism
, Jainism
Jainism
, and atheists) seems relevant for religious conflict even today: the hostility between these groups was like that between a mongoose and a snake. He also sheds light on contemporary events, commenting on the recent Greek incursion, and also on several tribes that lived in the Northwest regions of the subcontinent.

PATANJALATANTRA

Patanjali
Patanjali
is also the reputed author of a medical text called Patanjalah, also called Patanjala or Patanjalatantra. This text is quoted in many yoga and health-related Indian texts. Patanjali
Patanjali
is called a medical authority in a number of Sanskrit texts such as Yogaratnakara, Yogaratnasamuccaya, Padarthavijnana, Cakradatta bhasya. Some of these quotes are unique to Patanjala, but others are also found in major Hindu medical treatises such as Charaka Samhita and Sushruta Samhita .

There is a fourth scholar also named Patanjali, who likely lived in 8th-century CE and wrote a commentary on Charaka Samhita and this text is called Carakavarttika. The two medical scholars named Patanjali may be the same person, but generally accepted to be completely different person than the Patanjali
Patanjali
who wrote the Sanskrit grammar classic Mahabhasya.
