The Yoga Sutras text is attributed to Patanjali and even many text call Yoga Sutra as "Patanjali Yoga Sutra". Its collection of 196 Indian sutras (aphorisms) which were compiled prior to 400 CE by Sage Patanjali, taking materials about yoga from older traditions.

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali 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). Before the 20th century, history indicates the Indian yoga scene was dominated by the Bhagavad Gita, Yoga Vasistha, texts attributed to Yajnavalkya and Hiranyagarbha, as well as literature on hatha yoga, tantric yoga and pashupata yoga rather than the Yoga Sūtras of Patanjali.
