Rishi Vasihsta inquires to Asvins - In a single act of harnessing, Yoga, your chariot, O Asvins, went around the seven streams. Being well fed and yoked by the gods these speedy horses, who are carrying you do not get tired

Yoga’ is generally understood and regarded as a ‘practice’ resulting in the control of mind and senses and thus leading to ‘liberation’. The practice of yoga was taught by a teacher to a disciple and mostly in ‘private’. The intention was to pass on an experience intimately in a way suitable to the disciple. Those practices were put down as ‘teachings’ in textual form by the disciples and these have to come to stay as ‘yogic texts’. Thus the practice of yoga and the knowledge underlying them precedes the texts.
