The third of the these paths is the Yoga of technique or inner action (Kriya Yoga). Kriya means action in Sanskrit, particularly the internal actions done on the body and mind to aid the process of meditation. This term is found in the Yoga Sutras as its definition of the practice of Yoga. It is said to consist of three parts; tapas, the energization of the will, svadhyaya, self-study, and Ishwara-pranidhana, surrender to God or the Self-existent power. This definition of the practice of Yoga includes all three methods of jnana (self-study), bhakti (surrender to God) and technique (energization of the will).
