Mahāgarta (महागर्त) refers to a “great hole”, according to the Vijñānabhairavatantra verse 115.—Accordingly, [while teaching contemplative techniques]: “Having stood above a great hole (mahāgarta) such as a well, an immediate absorption of the mind clearly and completely arises for [the Yogin] whose mind is free of thoughts because of gazing [into it]”.
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).
