General definition (in Hinduism)

[Gorakshasamhita in Hinduism glossaries]

According to Pāṇḍeya the complete Gorakṣasaṃhitā would have consisted of 100.000 verses, only part of which has been preserved, namely the Kādiprakaraṇa, the Bhūtiprakaraṇa and the Yogaprakaraṇa. However, with regard to the contents no relationship exists between these three sections.
