Ayurveda categorizes individuals as per their mind-body types expressed in varying combinations of the 3 sets of basic parameters in different proportions. The mind body constitution at the time of birth is considered one’s Prakriti. This often deteriorates in due course influenced by factors ranging from diet, stress etc. The mind body constitution of an individual at any point of time, if assessed to be different from his Prakriti is considered a Vikriti or aberration from the original.
"Awareness is primordial; it is the original state, beginning-less, endless, un-caused, unsupported, without parts, without change. Consciousness is on contact, a reflection against a surface, a state of duality. There can be no consciousness without awareness, but there can be awareness without consciousness, as in deep sleep. Awareness is absolute, consciousness is relative to its content; consciousness is always of something." ~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ..*
Hatha yoga also called hatha vidya is a system of yoga introduced by Yogi Swatmarama, a sage of 15th century India, and compiler of the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. In this treatise Swatmarama introduces hatha yoga as preparatory stage of physical purification that the body practices for higher meditation. The asanas and pranayama in raja yoga were what the Hindu yogis used to physically train their body for long periods of meditation.
