Vedanta (school of philosophy)
Citsukha, c. 12th century CE, was a disciple of Jñānottama. He was a master of destructive dialectic in the mould of Śrīharṣa, as exhibited in his magnum opus, the Tattvapradīpikā (popularly known as the Citsukhī). He also wrote commentaries on the Khaṇḍana-khaṇḍa-khādya, the Brahmasiddhi and the Naiṣkarmyasiddhi.
Vedanta (वेदान्त, vedānta) refers to a school of orthodox Hindu philosophy (astika), drawing its subject-matter from the Upanishads. There are a number of sub-schools of Vedanta, however all of them expound on the basic teaching of the ultimate reality (brahman) and liberation (moksha) of the individual soul (atman).
Yoga (school of philosophy)
Citsukha (चित्सुख) refers to the “joy of pure consciousness”, according to the Haṭhapradīpikā verse 4.38.—Accordingly: “Because of Śāmbhavī and Khecarī Mudrās’ different positions [of the gaze] and places [of the meditative focus in the body], the bliss of absorption of mind arises in the void [which is] the [transcendent] joy of [pure] consciousness (citsukha-rūpiṇī)”.
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).
