The origin of the cultural field of liberation
In summary early-yoga, around the time of Buddha, could be classified as a cluster of ascetic and meditative technologies integrated and informed by various ascetic- and wisdom doctrines and practices’. They all aimed for the release of the soul. They emerged in a strange mixture of cultural institutions for old peoples’ proper way of dying and ritual suicide combined with cultural fields of Shaman-like outcasts, healers, fortune-tellers, and prophets. It is hard to find a common denominator for this mixture of outcast subcultures, where at the same time highly intellectual proto-yoga discourses and techniques evolved.
Upanishad Brahmins and Kshatriyas called these new technologies yoga’. In the Buddhist camp however this cluster of technologies and teachings did not achieve a unifying notion, but was referred to vaguely as Buddha’s dharma (teaching). In Buddhism we find instead a whole range of meditative concepts (four jhanas, samadhi, nirodha, samatha, vipassana). So within these institutions and sub-cultures at the margin of society there emerged a new substratum defined by a common discourse platform: the release or liberation of the soul.
The left hand on the floor will help you to lift Yoga jobs that side of your torso. Inhale again and stretch up again. Exhale and bend forward Yoga jobs toward your foot. Keep your arms pulled back into the shoulders even though they are also reaching forward. This will help you to extend the spine, refraining from rounding or collapsing it. Shift your belly toward the left and try to even up the ribs, left and right, as you stretch forward toward your foot. 1Use your breath to remain calm and avoid agitation. 1If your flexibility allows, stretch forward fully over the extended leg, grasping the foot with both hands, or the wrist as shown.
