      Yoga Sutra 1.20: Five Efforts and Commitments
      http://www.swamij.com/yoga-sutras/yoga-sutras-11922.htm#1.20

      Yoga Sutras describes five core attitudes and goals to cultivate:

      Shraddha: Developing the faith that you are going in the right
      direction
      Virya: Committing the energy to go there
      Smriti: Cultivating memory and mindfulness
      Samadhi: Seeking the states of samadhi
      Prajna: Pursuing the higher wisdom

      1.20 Others follow a five-fold systematic path of 1) faithful
      certainty in the path, 2) directing energy towards the practices, 3)
      repeated memory of the path and the process of stilling the mind, 4)
      training in deep concentration, and 5) the pursuit of real knowledge,
      by which the higher samadhi (asamprajnata samadhi) is attained.
