Īpsita (ईप्सित) refers to “one’s cherished desire”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.15 (“The penance and reign of Tārakāsura”).—Accordingly, after Tāraka requested boons from Brahmā: “O excellent sage, thus requested by that demon, I granted him two boons and hastened back to my abode. Securing the excellent boon in accordance with his cherished desire [i.e., īpsita], the demon was very glad and went to the town Śoṇita. That great demon was crowned the king of the three worlds with the permission of Śukra, the preceptor of the demons. [...]”.

Īpsita (ईप्सित) refers to “(that which one) desires”, according to the Guhyasūtra chapter 3.—Accordingly, “[...] One should recite the navātman one lakh (lakṣa) times … for siddhi: one who [thus] observes such an excellent observance for a year or just six months attains lowest, middling or best siddhi. But if, while observing such a vrata, someone recites five lakh times, then [that mantra] succeeds [for him] (siddhyate), and all mantras succeed for him and he attains the fruits he desires (īpsita). [...]”.

Īpsita (ईप्सित) refers to “that which one desires”, according to the the Amanaska Yoga treatise dealing with meditation, absorption, yogic powers and liberation.—Accordingly, as Īśvara says to Vāmadeva: “[...] [Now], I shall define the nature of that highest, mind-free absorption which arises for those devoted to constant practice. [...] The Yogin who has become absorbed in the highest reality for twenty-four days (caturviṃśativāsara), has the Siddhi [called] Prākāmya, by which he obtains what he desires (īpsita). [...]”.
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).
