Upayogin (उपयोगिन्) refers to “that which is useful to the Yogin”, according to the Amanaska Yoga treatise dealing with meditation, absorption, yogic powers and liberation.—Accordingly, as Īśvara says to Vāmadeva: “[...] For one whose self-awakening has arisen, who is in every way detached and is always devoted to practice, this [adherence to sectarian emblems] is not useful anywhere. Then, the different gazing points, the various other postures and states of mind are useless to the Yogin (upayogin) [ca yogino nopayoginaḥ]. [...]”.
