The first of these historic sanskrit textson yoga, is The Yoga Sutras through Sage Patanjali. If you have watched this video, you'll alreadyknow, that a sutra is a noticeably abridged concept.

 Sage patanjali, codified the complete essenceof yoga, into 195 such sutras. They are organized into four sections, via thename of samAdhi pAdaH, sadhana pAdaH, vibhUti pAdaH, and kaivalya pAdaH. The first section, samAdhi pAdaH contains51 sutras, the place Sage patanjali defines the country of yoga, and outlines the technique ofattaining to that state. This part additionally consists of the definitionsof a number states of samAdhi that one can achieve to, and the kind of sAdhana that leadsone to such states. The subsequent section, referred to as sAdhana pAdaH conatins55 sutras, which describe the practices pertaining to yoga. The literal which means of sAdhana, is a tool,or an instrument. The sutras of sAdhana pAda speak about differentkinds of strategy to yoga, a range of barriers one would possibly face in that approach, and the manymethods via which one can overcome such obstacles.

 The 1/3 section, referred to as vibhUti pAdaH alsocontains fifty five sutras. The phrase vibhUti, actually means, a specialstate of being. It is used to denote a number attainments andpowers one can liberate alongside one's trip in the direction of yoga. Sage patanjali lists out these powers, andalso mentions that these powers themselves can be an impediment in one's growth towardsreaching the ultimate objective. Finally, the fourth part known as kaivalyapAdaH incorporates 34 sutras. In this chapter, sage patanjali describesthe remaining nation of attainment, of absolute union with all of creation. Since in this state, one perceives no moreseparation between oneself and the other, this nation is named as kaivalya, which comesthe root phrase kevala, which means simply one, or single. Each sutra of the patanjali yoga sutras, alsoworks as a mantra, which when pondered upon repeatedly, displays the very essence containedin it. The subsequent Sanskrit texbook of yoga we shalllook at, is the haThayogapradIpika, authored by using swAmI swAtmArAma. It is a extra exercise oriented book, whichdetails the methods corresponding to yoga sAdhana. This textual content is composed of 383 shlokas, splitinto four chapters, referred to as as upadeshas. The first chapter, referred to as prathamopadeshaHcontains sixty two shlokas, and offers with the pre-requisites of embarking on yoga sAdhana, and detailssome of the most nice bodily postures, or Asanas. The 2nd chapter, referred to as dvitIyopadeshaHhas seventy seven shlokas, and offers with the system of prANAyAma, or exercising the existence energies,and the 6 techniques of purification, referred to as as ShaTkarmas. The 1/3 chapter, referred to as tRtIyopadeshaH,which has a hundred thirty shlokas offers with a number of mudras, and their benefits,while the fourth chapter, referred to as chaturthopadeshaH, with 114 shlokas, offers with the theoreticalconcepts of yoga, which includes the approaches of dhAraNa, dhyAna, and samAdhi.

 The subsequent outstanding sanskrit textual content on yoga,gheraNDa samhitA additionally focuses on the greater realistic components of yoga sAdhana. It consists of 351 shlokas break up throughout sevensections, every of which describes every of the seven modern steps in the direction of attainingto the nation of yoga. In the tenth and the eleventh shlokas of this book,the narrator, sage gheraNda, describes these seven tiers as follows:ShaTkarmaNAm shodhanancha Asanena bhaveddRDham mudrayA sthiratAchaiva pratyAhAreNa dhIratAprANAyAmAllAghavancha dhyAnAtpratyakShamAtmani samAdhinA nirliptancha muktireva na samshayaH This means, thru the exercise of ShaTkarmas,purification comes about; and via the exercise of Asanas, it is strenghthened. Through the exercise of mudras, steadinesscomes about, and through pratyAhAra composure. Through the exercise of prANAyAma, lightnessand buoyancy comes about, and thru dhyAna, the understanding of the self. And eventually as the seventh step, thru samAdhione attains to non-entanglement and barring a doubt, attains to liberation. The ultimate sanskrit textual content we shall appear at isthe most famous, yogavAsiShTham composed via sage vAlmIki. It is a dialog between Lord Rama, andhis Guru Sage vasiShTha. This textual content is infact large than the entirevAlmIki rAmAyaNam itself, with a grand complete of 32,000 shlokas. These shlokas are divided into six sectionscalled prakaraNas. While this textual content would not precisely supply specificdetails of yoga sAdhana, it is a lot greater complete in phrases of a non secular seeker's experience towardsthe pursuit of truth, beginning from the first chapter, known as vairAgya prakaraNam, or thesection on dispassion, to reaching to team spirit with existence at the end, in the sixth section,called as nirvANa prakaraNam, or the area on dissolution. It additionally incorporates the lifestyles memories of variouspeople in history, who attained to the kingdom of yoga, and the imperative existence preferences theyhad to make to get there.
