The entire eight Limbs of the Patanjali system are also sometimes referred to as Dhyana or the meditative path, although strictly speaking, only the last four limbs constitute meditation Pratyahara, Dhyana, Dharana, and Samādhi.
The preceding steps are only to prepare the body and mind for meditation. Meditation starts by being separating the mind, by being a witness. That is the only way of separating ourselves from anything.
Many meditative techniques require one to sit still and silent. But for most people accumulated stress in the body-mind makes that difficult. Before you can hope to access your inner powerhouse of consciousness, you need to let go of your tensions.
Active Meditations have been scientifically designed by Osho for contemporary man. The activity itself creates the situation in which passivity happens.
Yoga Sutras of Patanjali succinctly outlines the art and science of yoga meditation for self-realization. It is a process of systematically encountering, examining, and transcending each of the various gross and subtle levels of false identity in the mind field until the jewel of the true self comes shining through.
When Patanjali codified or compiled the Yoga Sutras, it was not that a new system was created, but rather, the ancient practices were summarized in an extremely organized and scientific way.
