In Hinduism

Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)

Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions

Yojita (योजित) refers to “joining” (e.g., ‘joining someone on a particular cosmic level’), according to the Svacchandatantra verse 4.141-145.—Accordingly, “[...] The other form [of bubhukṣu initiation] is the lokadharmiṇī, which destroys both past and future demerit. That lokadharmiṇī-dīkṣā is known to exclude the obligation to propitiate mantras [by means of purvasevā etc.]. However, when the current body breaks, [the candidate] experiences [the series of eight supernatural natural powers] starting with becoming very small. Having experienced [these] enjoyments he moves upwards to whichever [cosmic level] the Guru has joined (yojita) him [by yojanikā]. Whether this is at the sakala or niṣkala level [of Śiva] depends on [the preference of] the candidate and Guru”.

The terminal letter shining with various light, [which is the] split belly of the moon [j], is placed upon a hook [u], and yoked with (yojita) the last rising horizon [i.e., the wind or last labial nasalization] []. That which is described is celebrated in the world as the supreme Amṛta [sa], this is the highest dwelling place. [...]”.
