Yoga (school of philosophy)Source: Wisdom Library: Yoga
Adhidaivata (अधिदैवत) refers to “that which pertains to the spiritual” (the presiding deities of the fourteen adhyātma and their correspoding elements). It is also known as adhidaiva. The Subālopaniṣad (fifth section) draws correspondences between that which pertains to the body (adhyātma), the elements (adhibhūta) and their presiding deities (adhidaivata).
Yoga is originally considered a branch of Hindu philosophy (astika), but both ancient and modern Yoga combine the physical, mental and spiritual. Yoga teaches various physical techniques also known as āsanas (postures), used for various purposes (eg., meditation, contemplation, relaxation).
