Passage

Read the following paragraph carefully and answer the questions

Maharshi Patanjali enumerated eight limbs of Yoga for the quest of Kaivalya. These limbs of Yoga are Yama (Universal moral commandments), Niyama (Self-purification by disciplines), Asana (Postures), Pranayama (rhythmic control of prana), Pratyahara (withdrawl and total subjugation of senses), Dharana (concentration), Dhyana (Meditation), and Samadhi (a state of super-consciousness). First five limbs are categorised under ‘Bahiranga Yoga” and last three are considered under “Antaranga Yoga”. “Yama” are the rules of morality for society and the individual, including Ahimsa (Non-violence), Satya (Truthfulness), Asteya (Non-stealing), Brahmacharya (Conduct for spiritual attainment) and Aparigraha (Non-hoarding of all things). “Niyama” are the rules of conduct that apply to individual discipline. The five Niyama are Shaucha (Cleanliness), Santosha (Contentment), Tapa (Austerity), Swadhyaya (One’s own regular study), and Ishwara Pranidhana (dedication to the God).

The third limb of Ashtanga Yoga is Asana. The practice of “Asana” brings steadiness and comfort and person does not get easily affected by dualities like heat-cold, thirst-hunger, raga-dwesha etc. “Pranayama” means expansion or regulation of breath or vital energy. It is of four types viz. Bahyavritti, Abhyantaravritti, Stambhavritti and Bahyabhyantara-Vishayakshepi. “Pranayama” is to be practiced only after perfection in asana. Pranayama removes the coverings over light of knowledge and makes the mind capable for concentration. “Pratyahara” is the practice of withdrawing senses, mind, and consciousness from contact with external objects, and drawing them inwards towards the soul. Pratyahara results in absolute control of the sense organs. “Dharana” means focusing the attention on a chosen point or area, within or outside the body. “Dhyana” or meditation is the maintenance of continuous flow of attention directed towards the same point or area. “Samadhi” is the stage of super-consciousness when self-awareness is lost. Ashtanga Yoga is the best way to attain Kaivalya.
