Yoga theory[edit]

Hata Yoga and Laya Yoga[edit]

Swami Nigamananda engaged himself in the practice of "Hata Yoga" (हठ योग) as instructed by his Yoga guru Sumeru Das. According to Nigamananda the practice of "Hata Yoga" can be carried out when the body is made fit for the purpose the body should be cleansed first of the impurities through "Sat Sadhana" (सट साधना) i.e. the six elementary practices of Yoga. The practices of "Hata Yoga" can make the body strong which can enable it to survive for a period of about four hundred years or more, whereas "Laya Yoga"(लय योग) helps the aspirant to attain union with the supreme. If the body is not kept purified both externally and internally through the practices of "Hata Yoga", the succeeding steps of "Laya Yoga" would yield no result.
