Yogasandhyā (योगसन्ध्या) represents a 19th-century text dealing with Yoga.—According to the final colophon, the Yogasandhyā was composed by Śrīsadāśivanārāyaṇabrahmacāri, whose guru was Śrīmajjagannāthacaitanyabrahmacāri. They belonged to the tradition of the Śṛṅgerīmaṭha. The final verse mentions the date of composition in the bhūtasaṅkhyā system. If the term dharma represents the number eight, it would have been completed in VS 1861 (= 1804CE), when the sun was in the ninth Nakṣatra (tapas) and the moon full. See Yogasandhyā, p. 203 (rākeśarasadharmorvvīsammite vaikrame'bdake | tapasīne ca rākāyāṃ satkṛtiḥ pūrṇatāmitā).
