To say that Yoga is simply the name given to the practice of certain asanas,for the body’s well being is narrow and incomplete.
From what I infer,the word Yoga means union,literally.
Then ,Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras define Yoga as
Yogas chitra nivritti
(Do Correct my above quotation if it’s wrong,please)
Then we have Sri Krishna teaching Arjuna different types of Yoga(Jnana,Raja,inter Alia)
Can someone explain how
the literal meaning of Yoga :Union,
Patanjali Rishi’s definition,
And what Sri Krishna taught Arjuna,
are talking about the same “Yoga”?(if they do,that is)
(If they are not,would someone explain the difference as well?)
