Śiva Saṃhita. A Sanskrit text of the Nātha yoga school (13th–15th cents.), a mixture of advaita philosophy, Hatha and Tantric yoga. The last chapter enumerates obstacles to yoga, and also the four kinds of yoga which are, in ascending order, mantra, hatha, laya, and kriya. The latter involves closing off the senses and listening to inner mystical sound (hāda).
