Ramakrishna Mission Institute of Culture ~ ISBN: 9788187332671

Classical Yoga may be defined as yoga that is based on the instructions of the Siva-samhita,
Gheranda-samhita, and Patanjala Yoga-Sutra. The word 'yoga' is derived from two roots, one
meaning 'concentration' and the other meaning 'unionthat is, the union of the individual self
and the Supreme Self.
The word 'yoga' is derived from the same Sanskrit root as the English word 'yoke', meaning
'to join. According to Patanjala Yoga-Sutra, yoga is cittavrtti nirodha-that is, restraining the
citta, or mind, from taking various forms. Here yoga Means concentration.
But in Raja-yoga, which is traditionally considered a branch of the Tantra-sastra, yoga means
both concentration and union, in the sense of union of the individual self with the Supreme
Self. Again, yoga is broadly divided into two parts, Hatha-yoga and Raja-yoga, Hatha-yoga,
also known as Kriya-yoga, is primarily concerned with keeping the Body strong and healthy.
