Yoga (school of philosophy)
Sāṃsārika (सांसारिक) refers to a “worldly man”, according to the Amṛtasiddhi, a 12th-century text belonging to the Haṭhayoga textual tradition.—Accordingly, “Even a Buddha, as long as [he remains] unperfected [by means of the practice taught in the Amṛtasiddhi ], is considered a worldly man (sāṃsārika)”.
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).
