It consists of four main exercises already stated: pratyāhāra (sensory control), dhāraṇā (elementary concentration), dhyāna (unbroken concentration), and samādhi (super concentration). Samādhi is again subdivided into samprajñāta (super concentration with super knowledge) and asamprajñāta (supreme concentration). Concentration exercises are the higher form of Yoga exercises; they form a most important part of Ashtangha Yoga (the eightfold Yoga), the earliest systematic form, as well as Mantra, Laya, Ha˛ha, and Rāja Yogas, later elaborations that each stress different aspects.
Dhyāna state: continuous flow of one image (sensory, extrasensory, and supersensory) without any break 5. Vitarka samādhi state: image of one mahābhūta or “essential” isolated from the rest (presensory) 6. Vicāra samādhi state: image of one tanmātra or “thatness” (presensory) 7. Ānanda samādhi state: an experience of super consciousness with uninterrupted bliss (nonsensory) 8. Asmitā samādhi state: realization of deindividualized consciousness (nonsensory) 9. Asamprajñāta samādhi state: characterized by the absence of the subjective and objective aspects of consciousness and the transformation of deindividualized consciousness into Supreme Consciousness Concentration Exercises Now we have a clear picture of the whole process of concentration in Yoga.
Mind operating on the extraphysical plane is able to acquire knowledge of external objects without the usual means through the sense organs. Knowledge can be acquired pre- and supersensorially at a higher stage of concentration. Dhyāna (Unbroken Concentration) The next stage of concentration is dhyāna (unbroken concentration). When an interrupted flow of an image (dhāraṇ ā) is transformed into a continuous flow of that image, it is called dhyāna. Again take the illustration of the falling of water, as it is released drop by drop from a vessel full of water.
