Yoga (school of philosophy)

Rites (i.e., Vedic rituals) are denoted by the Sanskrit term Karman, according to the Amanaska Yoga treatise dealing with meditation, absorption, yogic powers and liberation.—Accordingly, as Īśvara says to Vāmadeva: “[...] [Those] unlearned, religious deviants who have abandoned their Vedic rites in vain, think [themselves] to be learned. They know nothing. The Yogin does not abandon rites (karman). For, [in the no-mind state] he is abandoned by rites, simply because of the cessation of volition, [which] is the root cause of [all] rites. [...]”.
