Dhyana and Yoga
The word Dhyana originates from Vedic language Sanskrit that implies profound mediation that is the penultimate stage of yoga. Dhyana Yoga is the union of the individual self with the universal self. Yogic science does not demarcate where the body starts and the mind begins, but approaches both as a single, integrated entity.
Dhyana (Sanskrit: ध्यान) means "contemplation, reflection" and "profound, abstract meditation". The root of the word is Dhi, which in the earliest layer of text of the Vedas refers to "imaginative vision" and associated with goddess Saraswati with powers of knowledge, wisdom and poetic eloquence. This term developed into the variant dhya- and dhyana, or "meditation".
Dhyana is contemplating, reflecting on whatever Dharana has focused on. If in the sixth limb of yoga one is concentrating on a personal deity, Dhyana is its contemplation. If the concentration was on one object, Dhyana is non-judgmental, non-presumptuous observation of that object. If the focus was on a concept/idea, Dhyana is contemplating that concept/idea in all its aspects, forms and consequences. Dhyana is uninterrupted train of thought, current of cognition, flow of awareness.
