Yoga (school of philosophy)

The Pole (of an umbrella) is denoted by the Sanskrit term Stambha, according to the Amanaska Yoga treatise dealing with meditation, absorption, yogic powers and liberation.—Accordingly, as Īśvara says to Vāmadeva: “[...] When the thorn that is the mind is dislodged by the natural, no-mind [state], the body becomes loose [and collapses] like a large umbrella without its pole (stambha). When the thorn of mental-faculties has been uprooted, roots and all, by means of the no-mind spade, the sage becomes happy. [...]”.
