It contains (in the present version) a total of 383 slokas divided into four Upadesas (instructions or lessons)including 69 of the first, 78 of the second, 123 of the third and 113 of the fourth lesson. The first lesson discusses mainly the yogi postures (Asanas), the second Pranayama, the third Mudra and the fourth Samadhi, the final goal of Yoga- ›adhana. The second, Gheranda-Samhita is a work of 351 Slokas (in the present version) divided into seven Upadesas or lessons each dealing with one stage of the sevenstage system of Hathayoga comprising: (1) six purificatory acts, (2) postures, (3) Mudras, (4)Pratyahara or withdrawal of senses, (5) Pranayama, (6) Dhyana or meditation and (7) Samadhi.
