    Abstract:
    This review does not comment adversely against the original writer of this work, who is a Doctor of the Roman Catholic Church. The review shows how this particular edition of the book fails as a study edition. It does not show, even in its reprint version, the sources of St. Teresa of Avila's mysticism. This edition of the book is shallow and irrelevant. Not so the actual text of St. Teresa of Avila. The review of this edition of this book is done from a Hindu perspective. The reviewer is clear that he does not have the spiritual experience(s) of Saint Teresa of Avila. His issues are with the reprinted study editions of this work. It is not possible for a cloistered nun during the European Renaissance to known of the Yoga Sutras. The reviewer is well aware of that.
