Filognosy knows many forms of uniting in the social/ideal field of public associations; especially sportive and religious (see fields of action). To unite one's consciousness is, to the three forms of yoga, known as:

*one's uniting in labor (karma),
*in voluntary labor (upâsana) en
*in spiritual knowledge (jñana).

Succinctly said comprises uniting in filognosy prayer, labor and knowing. Upâsana is the vedic term for dedicated, devotional activities or bhakti. In terms of labor is it also called karma (not to work, 'unemployment', charitable activity, unmotivated labor). There is an illegal fourth form of uniting oneself in doing work and that is to unite in adharma or unrighteous acts, in other words, in crime. Vedic it is called vikarma.

Sexual uniting, tantra.

To unite in sex is vedically called tantra yoga or simply tantra. The use of this term is there next to the alternative vedic meaning of 'ritual text' (see New Oxford American Dictionary). Classically is tantric sex, in which one is focussed at meditation and not at an orgasm for that matter, divided in three:

*heroic (vira) different partners, but less attached.
*animalistic (pas'u) faithful to one partner, but more possessive.
*divine (divya) only sex for offspring, the rest is subliminal.

Filognostically the fivetypes of uniting sexually

But filognostically we discriminate five forms of sexual behavior on which one may meditate to unite body and spirit.

*liberal - see above heroic (because detached) or simply promiscuous and unfaithful.
*loyal - see above: animalistic or simply monogamous and faithful.
*holy - see above: divine or celibate.
*passive - arbitrary sex in dreams and sex passively lived initiated by others, or meditative without any hankering for it.
* deviant - perversions, fantasies, masturbation, homosexuality (see pic.).

To unite in sexual activity belongs, on the basis of the regulating principles and the values, for the active types, to the spiritual discipline. Religious is one either inexperienced, passive sexual minded, of holy of self-control and intention. The rest of the not abiding by the rules and regulations with the sexuality, is then abuse and a sin religiously spoken. Filognostic we then speak of profiting which necessarily must be atoned for (religiously: penance or tapas). To be Holy of control, but go without dharma or discipline, in other words desirous after enlightenment but not willing take responsibility, leads to demoniac possession (to the falsely uniting of oneself, see also vikarma above and schizoid en schizophrenia).

  • Vedic equivalent for the threefold of yoga: kânda (lit.: section, part)
