In 2012, I published an article entitled "The Path to Liberation through Yogic Mindfulness (nivṛtti) in Early Ayurveda " in which I examined the earliest Ayurvedic writings on yoga. This investigation revealed that probably a century or two before Patañjali, structured notions of a yogic path to liberation circulated among physicians and were integrated into their conception of the philosophy of medicine.

In the present paper, I will take this exploration of yoga in medicine a step further by discussing another passage on yoga and liberation that occurs in the same treatise, the Compendium of Caraka (Ca.śā.5).
