Hmmm... When MMY refers to the "vedic," he's talking about all the "vedic literature" as he
defines it PLUS any techniques he associates with that liteature, such as dyhan.


That a list of mantras doesn't appear in the Veda explicitly isn't any more relevant than
the fact that the 100,000+ variations of the yoga asanas don't get explicit mention either
--or are you saying that only asanas that are described/mentioned explicitly in the Vedas
are genuine vedic asanas?

Yoga asanas come from the Nath tantric siddhas. They ain't Vedic either dude.
