‘Yoga’ is derived from the word ‘Yuj” which means ‘to join’. On a theistic basis it can be defined as the union of individual and supreme consciousness. While on a secular mode it can mean the mind’s concentration on a specific action. These definitions point to yogasastras which once existed in India. In later years ‘theism’ was found in Pathanjali’s ‘yogasastra’ and ‘secularism’ in ‘Hadayoga Pradeepika’ of 4th century.
