Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You have concentrated on Yoga and given a theistic and non-theistic interpretations of Ishvara, but there should be more? Up to six different views of Ishvara?


Nyaya: Sets forth the rules and limits of thought/logic/language
Vaisheshika: Analysis (an ancient atomic theory is part of this approach)
Samkhya: An atheistic, dualistic approach which posits an essential difference between matter and mind
Yoga: Gnosis
Mimamsa: A theistic approach
Vedanta: Posits an essential non-duality
Is it correct to associate "the uncaused cause" to Samkhya [or is it Vaisheshika?], "god" to Mimamsa and samadhi with Yoga?
