Yoga (school of philosophy)
Unmanībhāva (उन्मनीभाव) refers to the “no-mind state of mind”, according to the Kaulajñānanirṇaya 14.82-84.—Accordingly: “I shall talk about [a practice] higher than [the previous one]. Listen, O you who are venerated by the adepts. [The Yogin] should not contemplate water, fire, wind nor ether; not below, above [nor] in the space between [the two]. My dear, [by doing so, the Yogin] becomes [insentient] like a piece of wood [or] a clod of earth, when the no-mind state of mind (unmanībhāva) arises, O beautiful one. Having made the mind a void in the void, free of thought, he becomes one whose condition is unchanging”.
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).

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
