Saivite yoga – pointing back in time or forwards to hatha-yoga?
The overlap of Saivite yoga with the old ascetic-wisdom-liberation traditions is confirmed for instance by two historical earlier Buddhist Tantras instructing a six-limb yoga: the Kalacakra- and Guhya-Samaja-Tantra mentioned earlier. Here the limbs are: pratyahara- dhyana – pranayama – dharana – anusmriti (i.e. tarka) – samadhi. So we find exactly the same elements or limbs in the Buddhist discourse, but now in a different sequence. Hence the
Saivite yoga discourse seems to be similar to this Buddhist six-limb yoga. What cannot be excluded – and what is probable – is that the Buddhist Tantras copy from the Saivists as often happened at this time (Sanderson 2009).
