Yoga in Bali-Hinduism plays fundamental role in the self realization. Every act of approaching God is considered as yoga the basis of which is purity and sincerity. Hence, it is synthetic in nature. Ethics (sasana), ritual (yajna), and knowledge (tattwa), and act as the framework to understand this religion. They are altogether forms of yoga. In other words, yoga in Balinese tradition is synthesis of yoga both for a sadhaka and lay man as well. It is called Siva Yoga, because through this yoga the seeker proceeds his inner journey to reach Sivahood. It transforms human from bondage to freedom. As it is synthetic in nature, it can cope up with different levels of devotees (bhaktas). Yoga concretizes tattva in rituals or action (kriya) both public and private as can clearly be seen in temple pujà. Arts involved in here are also means for self-transformation, to go towards self-realization. Saiva ritual is through and through penetrated by yoga Mandala, arcana, yantra, mantra (pranava) are mediums through which jiva is approaching the Lord of Siva. It starts its inner realization through practicing ethics, ritual, and knowledge synthetically of the agama ssstras.
