Source: ORA: Amanaska (king of all yogas): (ayurveda)

Sādharmya (साधर्म्य) refers to a “true similarity (of origin)”, according to the Kāśyapasaṃhitā (Khilasthāna, verse 9.43-45ab) in a chapter on abdominal swelling caused by vitiation of the blood.—Accordingly, “Listen to the cause of that which produces the cravings [of a seemingly pregnant woman with raktagulma]. Generally, there is desire for those tastes which cause an increase of the bodily constituents because of the true similarity of their origin (yoni-sādharmya). [When] the vitiated blood has a Vāta or Pitta [imbalance] and is accumulating, it fuels desire for tastes such as [those which are] acrid, sour, salty and so on”.

In Buddhism

Tibetan Buddhism (Vajrayana or tantric Buddhism)

Source: ORA: Amanaska (king of all yogas): (Tibetan Buddhism)

Sādharmya (साधर्म्य) refers to “that which resembles (sleep)”, according to the Ciñcinīmatasārasamuccaya.—In the Amanaska, the term yoganidrā is a synonym for the no-mind state. [...] In contrast to the paucity of its occurrences in Yoga texts, yoganidrā is well attested in epic, Tantric and Pauranic literature that predates the Amanaska. [...] In Ratnākaraśānti's commentary (i.e., the Guṇavatī) on the Mahāmāyātantra, he glossed yoganidrā as follows; “Because it resembles sleep (nidrā-sādharmya) inasmuch as it is absolutely free from distraction, the sleep [of Yoganidrā] is like sleep; [thus,] Yoganidrā is both yoga and sleep”
