"Yoga" is the name for what? Patanjali Yogdarshan has said that the absence of natural tendency of thought is Yoga "Yogachittavruttinirodhah (1/2). But Gita says that equanimity is Yoga - "Samattvam yoga uchayate" (Gita 2/48). This equanimity is everlasting. Before union there is equanimity, in the end after separation is also equanimity, and while there is union there is also equanimity. In this manner, one's eternal state of equanimity itself is Eternal Yoga (Nityayog). Therefore whoever has experienced this state of Eternal Union (Nitya Yoga); Gita calls that one "Yogaroodh" . How does one recognize a "Yogaroodh"? For this Gita has said three things. To not have attachment and infatuation for material things, actions and to give up all resolves (sankalp) -
"Yada hinendriyaartheshu na karmaswanushajjate |
Sarvasankalpsanyaasi yogaaroodhstdochyate || (Gita 6/4)
The point is that let there be no sense enjoyments and infatuation in actions and let there be no insistence within that this should happen like this and it should not happen like this, that I should get this and I should not get this, that I should encounter this and not encounter those. These are all called "resolves" (sankalp). Therefore neither should there be infatuation for things, nor a fascination for those things that are missing, neither attachment to actions nor fondness for lack of activity, and let there be no "resolves" then he has become a "Yogroodh".
The point is that whether one gets objects or not, whether activities take place or not, let there be no insistence "Naiv tasya krutenaartho naakruteneha kaschna" (Gita 3/18). If you get the things then it is good, if you do not get them, then too good! If actions take place then it is good, if they do not then too it is good! Resolves if they are accomplished then good, if they are not accomplished then too it is good! If the natural tendencies are inhibited then good, if they are not, then good! We have no relation with them.
The meaning of not having attachment to sense enjoyments and to action means to become free of wants and free of effort. If the senses are not attached to sense pleasures and there is no attachment to objects then one becomes free of want "achaah" and if there is no attachment to actions, then one becomes free of effort "aprayatna". The point is, let there be absence of want and effort. When one becomes free of want and free of effort, then one becomes naturally inseparable from Paramatma (God). As such one has not become inseparable, one is already inseparable. Due to not being free of want and free of effort, one does not experience that oneness. When there is absence of want and effort then one naturally experiences the eternal union of remaining established in the Self
