  1. I don't understand how the Yoga Sutra is considered only "part" of the patanjalayogasastra? Can you clarify for me?

  2. The name Pātañjalayogaśāstra has a specific meaning. It is the complete text that contains the 195 aphorisms (known commonly as the Patañjali’s Yogasūtras) along with commentarial remarks entwined throughout (known as the Bhāṣya). If you are reading a translation of Patañjali’s Yogasūtras with only the 195 aphorisms or with a commentary other than that of the original Bhāṣya, then it is not the Pātañjalayogaśāstra.
