Yathāyogam (यथायोगम्) means “according to the attendant circumstances ”, as mentioned in verse 4.28 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] he who knows the right time (for administering remedies) shall thereafter apply perfect elixirs and aphrodisiac preparations according to the (prescribed) order (and the attendant) circumstances [viz., yathāyogam]”.

Note: Entering into particulars, yathākramam—“according to the (prescribed) order” has been rendered by the original rim-pa bźin-du, whereas yathāyogam (“according to the attendant circumstances”) has been translated by the imitative ci rigs-par. The juxtaposition of these two modes of expression is remarkable.

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.
