Yoga (school of philosophy)Source: ORA: Amanaska (king of all yogas): A Critical Edition and Annotated Translation by Jason Birch
Sarvathā (सर्वथा) means “in every respect”, according to the Kiraṇatantra verse 9.7-8.—Accordingly: while discussing the importance of the gnosis of Śiva: “Experience is a thought on an object of thought and is [thus] mental. Therefore, what is mental can be understood and what is beyond mind and formless [cannot]. [So], how can a Guru, having not known [Śiva’s] highest reality [which is beyond mind and formless] give initiation? For an object can be known entirely, [but] he cannot be known in every respect (sarvathā)”.
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).
General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Sarvathā (सर्वथा) refers to “entirely”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Indeed, alone, the self roams about in the impassable wilderness of the world which is full of great misfortune [and] inflamed by the fire of suffering. The same [self] always takes hold of the interior of a body entirely (sarvathā) to experience the good and bad result developed from its own action by itself”.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
