Yoga Sutras are of major importance as they are the most significant texts of Patanjali's yoga. The two largest collections of sutras are the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali and the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali. The first is composed of 200 sutras, and the second of 39. They contain aphoristic statements on yoga and meditation practice, and are part of the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita. They are also often called Yoga Shastras. Although the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali is called the Yoga Sutra, or another name, it does not constitute a single text. The sutras are statements of individual verses in a series of aphorisms. They are organized into eight chapters, which subdivide into sections called pada. The text is organized in such a way that each pada ends on a note that is an important theme to that section. So the first pada discusses the ability to know the Self, the second pada discusses the ability to attain Self-knowledge, etc. The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali has been 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. White points out that the text fell into relative 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, the Theosophical Society and others.
According to S. Alexander, most of the philosophical and ethical statements in the Yoga Stras in the Bhagavad Gita and Yoga Sutra were already well known by the 6th century CE, in contrast to the Yoga Stras of Patajali which only gained currency in the 12th century CE (Alexander's dating).
