Yugma (युग्म).—(I) lit, pair; the word is used for the second and fourth consonants ख्, घ्, छ्, झ् (kh, gh, ch, jh) etc. of the five classes which, in a way are combinations of two consonants; cf. युग्माः सोष्माणः (yugmāḥ soṣmāṇaḥ) R. T. 16; cf also युग्मौ सोष्माणौ (yugmau soṣmāṇau) where the word सोष्मन् (soṣman) is explained as उष्म। वायुस्तेन सह वर्तन्त इति सोष्माणः । खघ छझ टढ थध फभ (uṣma| vāyustena saha vartanta iti soṣmāṇaḥ | khagha chajha ṭaḍha thadha phabha); cf.also युग्मयोद्वितीयचतुर्थयोः (yugmayodvitīyacaturthayoḥ); (2) even, as opposed to odd, referring to the vowels ओ (o) and औ (au) which are even in the enumeration ए ओ ऐ औ (e o ai au).

Kavyashastra (science of poetry)Source: Shodhganga: Bhismacaritam a critical study
Yugma (युग्म) refers to a “combination of two sentences” as employed in the Bhīṣmacarita (Bhishma Charitra) which is a mahākāvya (‘epic poem’) written by Hari Narayan Dikshit.—Another remarkable peculiarity of Hari Narayan’s style is that the stanzas are written in ‘yugmas’. The stanza is generally a complete sentence in the poem but some times more than one have a single finite verb. There are a good number of such verses which are found in Bhīṣmacarita and they are III.13-14 and X.35 to X.38. In this regard Madhusudan Mishra rightly observes that the poet is at liberty to choose his favourite metre to begin a canto, he also has to observe the restriction to continue it in spite of all odds. That is to say, sometimes the metre in hand may look too tiny before the elaborate ideas and the poet may face the situation of a square peg in round hole, but there is no alternative before the poet other than continuing the one at the beginning. The early poets must have felt such difficulties in their works, but soon they could have got through it by devising some tricks like yugma, sandanitaka, kalāpaka, kūlaka, etc. in which a number of stanzas are connected with one another as forming one sentence.
Kavyashastra (काव्यशास्त्र, kāvyaśāstra) refers to the ancient Indian tradition of poetry (kavya). Canonical literature (shastra) of the includes encyclopedic manuals dealing with prosody, rhetoric and various other guidelines serving to teach the poet how to compose literature.
Jyotisha (astronomy and astrology)Source: Google Books: Studies in the History of the Exact Sciences (Astronomy)
Yugma (युग्म) refers to a “pair” (e.g., a pair of clothes), according to the Nāradasaṃhitā verse 29.86-95 (pp. 181-184), a Sanskrit work on astrology having the Saralā commentary by Vasatirāma Śarmā.—Accordingly, “[...] In an auspicious copper basin, or in a clay basin that has been filled with water, having decorated it with effort by means of sandal paste, flowers and coloured rice, the basin which is placed upon grains of rice, to which a gold piece is added and which is covered by a pair of clothes [i.e., vastra-yugma], one should place the bowl after having seen the rise of half of the Sun’s orb. [...]”.
Jyotisha (ज्योतिष, jyotiṣa or jyotish) refers to ‘astronomy’ or “Vedic astrology” and represents the fifth of the six Vedangas (additional sciences to be studied along with the Vedas). Jyotisha concerns itself with the study and prediction of the movements of celestial bodies, in order to calculate the auspicious time for rituals and ceremonies.
Vaishnavism (Vaishava dharma)Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions (vaishnavism)
Yugma (युग्म) refers to “both”, according to Vedānta Deśika’s Yatirājasaptati (verse 73).—Accordingly, “May the Yatirājasaptati, the lamp that aids the Upaniṣads by which the distortions that are wrong views are extinguished, give us the knowledge that encompasses both the vibhūtis of the Blessed One (bhagavad-vibhūti-yugma)”.
Vaishnava (वैष्णव, vaiṣṇava) or vaishnavism (vaiṣṇavism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshipping Vishnu as the supreme Lord. Similar to the Shaktism and Shaivism traditions, Vaishnavism also developed as an individual movement, famous for its exposition of the dashavatara (‘ten avatars of Vishnu’).
Ganitashastra (Mathematics and Algebra)Source: archive.org: Hindu Mathematics
Yugma (युग्म) represents the number 2 (two) in the “word-numeral system” (bhūtasaṃkhyā), which was used in Sanskrit texts dealing with astronomy, mathematics, metrics, as well as in the dates of inscriptions and manuscripts in ancient Indian literature.—A system of expressing numbers by means of words arranged as in the place-value notation was developed and perfected in India in the early centuries of the Christian era. In this system the numerals [e.g., 2—yugma] are expressed by names of things, beings or concepts, which, naturally or in accordance with the teaching of the Śāstras, connote numbers.
Ganitashastra (शिल्पशास्त्र, gaṇitaśāstra) refers to the ancient Indian science of mathematics, algebra, number theory, arithmetic, etc. Closely allied with astronomy, both were commonly taught and studied in universities, even since the 1st millennium BCE. Ganita-shastra also includes ritualistic math-books such as the Shulba-sutras.
