For yoga, says Katz, this means that crucial notions – defining the purpose of the practice -like kaivalya, Kundalini, siddhi, jivan-mukti and Siva-anubhava must be understood as such fused conglomerates of experience-interpretation’. The notions mentioned are shaped by a wide range of concepts which the yogi brings to and uses to bring about the mystical experience’.384
Here Katz is in direct disagreement with much yoga philosophy. In much of the yoga discourse notions like kaivalya’ and brahman realisation’ have been defined as experiences happening in non-conceptual states of minds’,states where the mind is free of any interpretations. It is a state of pure experience’, happening even before any pre-understanding kicks in. So following constructional views, the yogi virtuoso – absorbed in non-conceptual mind states – claims to have access to primitive centres of the brain which process input even before any pre-understanding has set in.
