Svapnātiga (स्वप्नातिग) refers to “one who passes beyond sleep”, according to the the Amanaska Yoga treatise dealing with meditation, absorption, yogic powers and liberation.—Accordingly, as Īśvara says to Vāmadeva: “[...] In sleep, a portion of consciousness is lost and in wakefulness, there is grasping at sense objects. The wise know that there is an inner reality beyond sleep and wakefulness. The knowers of the highest reality know that the highest reality is beyond the duality of existence and non-existence, passes beyond [both] sleep (svapnātiga) and waking [svapnajāgaraṇātigam] and is free from dying and living. [...]”.
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).
