Gheranda Samhita

Yoga Dictionary
"Gheranda's Compendium " was written during the 17th Century, and is one of three major surviving classical treatises on Hatha Yoga. Like many early writings on yoga, the written text is little more than a set of instructor's lecture notes, covering only the highlights, and leaving the rest to be filled in orally, or by actual demonstration. A translation of Gheranda Samhita with commentary is currently being developed on the ClassicYoga.Org Website. Gheranda Samhita consists of about 351 verses, divided into seven sections, as follows: Shat kriyas - 6 categories of hygiene and purification are taught, including a number of specific techniques in each category, making a total of about twenty hygienic techniques. See kriya.
