Yoga (school of philosophy)Source: ORA: Amanaska (king of all yogas): A Critical Edition and Annotated Translation by Jason Birch
Akalmaṣa (अकल्मष) refers to “untainted”, according to the Bhagavadgītā verse 6.25cd-27.—Accordingly: “Having fixed the mind on the self, [the Yogin] should think of nothing whatsoever. Wherever the fickle and unsteady mind moves, there, having restrained it, he should direct it [back] to the self. For, supreme [transcendental] happiness approaches that untainted (akalmaṣa) Yogin whose mind is tranquil and his restiveness quelled, [because he has] attained the absolute”.
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).

Akalmāṣa (अकल्माष, “unvarying”) or Akalmāṣaśīla refers to the “unvarying morality”, according to the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter 36.—Accordingly, “if the mind goes alternately in two directions, sometimes toward Nirvāṇa and sometimes toward saṃsāra, there is ‘varying’ morality (kalmāṣa). If the mind goes exclusively toward Nirvāṇa, there is ‘unvarying’ morality (akalmāṣa)”.
