Yoga (school of philosophy)
Sajjana (सज्जन) refers to “wise persons”, according to the Yogatārāvalī: a short Yoga text of twenty-nine verses presenting Haṭhayoga as the means to Rājayoga (i.e., Samādhi).—Accordingly, while describing the no-mind state: “Let this mind wander into thoughtless Samādhi or into a pair of voluptuous breasts of [women] whose eyes are [as alluring as those of] the spotted black deer. Let it roam among the thoughts of idiots or the thoughts of the wise (sajjana). The merits and faults produced by thought do not touch me, the king [of Rājayoga]”.
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).
India history and geography
Sajjaṇa (सज्जण) is the name of a governor, as is mentioned in the Vividhatīrthakalpa by Jinaprabhasūri (13th century A.D.): an ancient text devoted to various Jaina holy places (tīrthas).—Accordingly, “Jayasiṃha killed King Khaṃgāra and in his place appointed the governor by the name of Sajjaṇa”.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as mythology, zoology, royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
