Yoga-Vasistha is considered the oldest text of yoga, written almost 3000 years before Patanjali. Great masters evolved the knowledge and practices of yoga at different times without changing the very essence of its philosophy. Meditation remained as an integral organ in all ages, however, masters included many physical, breathing, cleansing, and other practices as per the need for the contemporary society.
