Yoga (school of philosophy)Source: ORA: Amanaska (king of all yogas): A Critical Edition and Annotated Translation by Jason Birch
Upāsita (उपासित) refers to “worshipping (the Guru)”, according to the the Amanaska Yoga treatise dealing with meditation, absorption, yogic powers and liberation.—Accordingly, as Īśvara says to Vāmadeva: “[...] Just as copper becomes gold from the touch of fixed mercury, [so] the student becomes absorbed in the highest reality from hearing the teachings of the Guru. If [the Yogin] worships (upāsita) the guru fully he will obtain from him the natural [no-mind state] without effort. [So,] he should devote himself at all times to this practice of the self. [...]”.
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).
