Strength can be denoted by the Sanskrit term Bala, according to verse 81ab-82cd of the Dattātreyayogaśāstra.—Accordingly, “Then, from [even] more practice, abundant strength (bala) arises [in the Yogin], because of which [he gains] the Siddhi of moving across the earth, and he is able to conquer those who inhabit the earth”.
