Know what is the relation of yoga with Buddhism?


Yoga is the oldest form of practice in India. This is India’s invaluable gift to the world. The birth and development of Buddhism also took place in India. The practice of cultivation is mainly described in Buddhism. In yoga too, spiritual practice is the key to attaining salvation. Both yoga and Buddhism consider the end of the cycle of birth and death. Therefore, there is a similarity between both the principles of Yoga and Buddhism. In both Yoga and Buddhism, it has been emphasized that for mental training it is necessary to adapt to physical and health conditions. By this action one has to subdue the body and prepare it for the attainment of knowledge.  Like Ashtanga Yoga of Yoga, Buddhist practice also describes the Ashtanga path to Nirvana, which also includes Yama and Niyam. The eightfold path of Buddhist practice is Samma-Vittha (Samyak Darshana) i.e. knowledge of Arya-Truth. Samma-sankalp (Samyak sankalpa) i.e. determination to abandon raga, malice, violence and worldly matters. Samma-covenant (Samyak Vak) means the abandonment of false, improper and misconduct and protecting the true word. Samma-Kampant (Samyak Karmant) means abduction of His Holiness, abandoning the desire for lust-fulfillment and doing good deeds. Samma-Aajeev (Samyak Aajeeva) means a just livelihood. Samma-vayam (perfect exercise) means to destroy evil and be determined to do good deeds. Samma-sati (Samyak Smriti) means Chittashuddhi by stopping greed etc. Samma-samadhi (samyak samadhi) concentration of mind.
