Sample text

It is stated in the Agni-purā˚a that Yoga, which is spiritual union, is attainable when the vṛittis are completely eliminated. This definition of Yoga, originating in the Vedic period, remained unmodified in the post-Vedic period and has been accepted by yogins of all ages. Patañjali’s definition of Yoga is essentially based on the above-mentioned older conception of Yoga, but expressed in a language in which the concentration factor is more clearly defined. Patañjali says: “Yoga is that state in which the mind ceases to function as vṛittis” (Patañjala Yoga-sūtra).

The Lotus Posture was introduced into Egypt, and it formed a part of the Egyptian gymnastic dance during the Old Kingdom (about 3000 to 2475 BCE). The concentration postures formed an essential part of the eightfold Yoga and also of the Mantra Yoga, Laya Yoga, Ha˛ha Yoga, and Rāja Yoga. Gradually other postures for concentration were developed. In Ha˛ha Yoga, in addition to the development of the folded-leg postures into more difficult postures, a system of posture exercise was evolved. Breath Control in Concentration In a folded-leg concentration posture, the legs and arms are in an attitude of rest and the trunk is erect and steady.

It was, perhaps, associated with religion in the Stone Age. Most probably the intellectual Stone Age priests somehow felt the utility of breath control in connection with prayer and concentration and practiced it in some shape. This archaic breath regulation was gradually transformed into breath control in the Chalcolithic age: in the time of Ṛigveda a system of breath culture was practiced; the importance of the purification, development, and control of breath-power was recognized (Śuklayajurveda); the long-slow type of breath control with breath suspension was practiced (Atharvaveda).
