Training the body and mind

The training of the body is the first step to training of the mind. A healthy mind can exist only in a healthy body. Hence Hatha yoga or training the body is the first step to the training of the mind – Raja yoga. Hatha may be translated as “hard” or training in hardness. Raja in this connection may be translated as royal or softness, or training on royal grace or mental discipline. Notes by Rai Bahadur Srisa Chandra Vasu from  ~ The Gheranda Samhita
