Kṣubdha (क्षुब्ध) refers to the “agitation (of sexual desire)”, according to the 13th-century Matsyendrasaṃhitā: a Kubjikā-Tripurā oriented Tantric Yoga text of the Ṣaḍanvayaśāmbhava tradition from South India.—Accordingly, “[Visualisation of Parameśvara]:—[...] His heart is agitated (kṣubdha-hṛdaya) with sexual desire. His lotus face displays a faint smile. This is how the Yogin should visualise his body for a long time, as transformed into Śiva. All his limbs are perfumed with sandal, aloe, camphor, musk and saffron. He has a beautiful face. He is surrounded by millions of gem islands, in a chamber on a fine bed”.
Shaiva (शैव, śaiva) or Shaivism (śaivism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshiping Shiva as the supreme being. Closely related to Shaktism, Shaiva literature includes a range of scriptures, including Tantras, while the root of this tradition may be traced back to the ancient Vedas.
Yoga (school of philosophy)Source: ORA: Amanaska (king of all yogas): A Critical Edition and Annotated Translation by Jason Birch
Kṣubdha (क्षुब्ध) refers to “agitation” (of the vital airs), according to the Mokṣopāya (verse 5.54.4-5, 9 and 16).—Accordingly, “When the first part of Om whose [entire] length consists of three and a half parts, was [articulated] as a clear sound by which the body quivered because the vital airs were slightly agitated (manāk-kṣubdha), the process of expelling the vital airs, [which is] called Recaka, made the whole body empty, just as Agastya drank [all] the water [and made] the ocean [empty]...”.
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).
