Natyashastra (theatrics and dramaturgy)Source: Wisdom Library: Nāṭya-śāstra
Accordingly, “anger (manyu) arises in a woman when the beloved one comes to her from the place of a rival woman, and carries the signs of his union with her and boasts about his good luck in this matter. Anger should be represented by turning round the Valayas (bangles) and throwing up the Rasanā in a loose manner and by apprehensive and tearful eyes”.
Natyashastra (नाट्यशास्त्र, nāṭyaśāstra) refers to both the ancient Indian tradition (shastra) of performing arts, (natya—theatrics, drama, dance, music), as well as the name of a Sanskrit work dealing with these subjects. It also teaches the rules for composing Dramatic plays (nataka), construction and performance of Theater, and Poetic works (kavya).
Jyotisha (astronomy and astrology)Source: The effect of Samvatsaras: Satvargas
Manyu (मन्यु) or Krodhana refers to the fifty-ninth saṃvatsara (“jovian year)” in Vedic astrology.—If there is birth in the ‘samvatsara’ named ‘manyu’ the native puts obstacles in the work of others, is Tamoguni’ (dominated in temperament by the quality of Tamas’. ‘Satwa’, ‘Rajas’ and Tamas’ are the three cardinal elements in man’s nature), fierce or terrible and puts others in delusion (deceives others).
According with Jataka Parijata, the person born in the year manyu (2045-2046 AD) will be a rake addicted to evil ways, a hater of his relatives and devoted to brigandage.
Jyotisha (ज्योतिष, jyotiṣa or jyotish) refers to ‘astronomy’ or “Vedic astrology” and represents the fifth of the six Vedangas (additional sciences to be studied along with the Vedas). Jyotisha concerns itself with the study and prediction of the movements of celestial bodies, in order to calculate the auspicious time for rituals and ceremonies.
Yoga (school of philosophy)Source: ORA: Amanaska (king of all yogas): A Critical Edition and Annotated Translation by Jason Birch
Manyu (मन्यु) refers to “anger”, according to the Mahābhārata verse 14.19.1-2.—Accordingly: while describing the supreme knowledge of the eternal and unchanging state: “He who has become absorbed in one object, silently not thinking of anything, having abandoned [everything] prior [to this] is free from any undertaking. He is a friend to all, endures all, is indifferent [to all things], his senses controlled, his fear and anger (manyu) have ceased, his desire slain, [this] man is free”.
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).
