He is known to be an incarnation of di S'esha who is the first ego-expansion of Vishnu, the manifestation of Vishnu. His primeval energies and opulences, is part of the so-called catur vyha, the fourfold manifestation of Vishnu. Thus may Patajali be considered as the one incarnation of God defending the ego of yoga. In recent decades the Yoga Sutra has become quite popular worldwide for the precepts regarding practice of Raja Yoga and its philosophical basis.

He was a great Natya dancer and is revered by the exponents of classical Indian dance as their patron saint.
