 The aim of the present investigation is to study the “Utility of Hathayoga and Rajyoga described in Yogatattvopanishad in modern life.” The Author of Yogatattwopanishad has mentioned important Yama, Moderate Diet (Mitahara), Niyama, Non-Voilence (Ahimsa), mentions four asanas (Siddhasan,  Padmasana,  Bhadrasana, Simhasana), Pranayama (effect of pranayama on the Brain, Cardiovascular System, Respiratory System). Practice of pratyahara, accentuates mastery over sensory perceptions and chitta’s reaction to them, Dharaṇa (meditative focusing) and ekagrata (focusing without meditation). As the term ‘meditation’ is so broad, and its therapeutic uses encompass many conditions including pain, mental health and somatic conditions, research on such diverse modalities and outcomes has been conducted in a systematic scientific manner.  


Keywords: Hathyoga, Rajayoga, Yogatattwopanishad, Modern Life.
