Yoga (school of philosophy)
The Sritattvanidhi ("The Illustrious Treasure of Realities") is an iconographic treatise written in the 19th century in Karnataka by the then Maharaja of Mysore, Krishnaraja Wodeyar III (b. 1794 - d. 1868). The Maharaja was a great patron of art and learning and was himself a scholar and writer. There are around 50 works ascribed to him.
The work is in nine parts, each called a nidhi ("treasure"). The nine sections are:
- Shakti nidhi
- Vishnu nidhi
- Shiva nidhi
- Brahma nidhi
- Graha nidhi
- Vaishnava nidhi
- Shaiva nidhi
- Agama nidhi
- Kautuka nidhi
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).
