In Hinduism

Vyakarana (Sanskrit grammar)

[Yogavibhaga in Vyakarana glossaries]

Yogavibhāga (योगविभाग).—Bifurcation of a rule (sūtra). This technical device is resorted to in Pāṇini’s Aṣṭādhyāyī in order to derive certain words which otherwise would not be possible according to Pāṇini’s rules.

Yogavibhāga (योगविभाग).—Division of a rule which has been traditionally given as one single rule, into two for explaining the formation of certain words, which otherwise are likely to be stamped as ungrammatical formations. The writer of the Varttikas and the author of the Mahabhasya have very frequently taken recourse to this method of योगविभाग (yogavibhāga); cf. P.I.1.3 Vart. 8, I.1.17 Vart.1,I.1.61, Vart. 3; I. 4.59 Vart. 1, II. 4. 2. Vart.2, III.1.67 Vart. 5, III.4.2. Vart. 6, VI.I. I Vart. 5, VI.1.33 Vart.1 etc. Although this Yogavibhaga is not a happy method of removing difficulties and has to be followed as a last recourse, the Varttikakara has suggested it very often, and sometimes a sutra which is divided by the Varttikakara into two,has been recognised as a couple of sutras in the Sutrapatha which has come down to us at present.
