General philosophical ideas of Hinduism, Yoga and Tantra indeed underlie in Nathism, but the Naths emphasize on practical comprehension of the Ultimate Reality through forms of Yoga. Every practice is actually a manifestation of philosophical conceptions. Natha Yogis think that only through gained experience the philosophy can have a meaning and will become knowledge. A connection of individual soul and the Ultimate Spirit are implemented through qualities of asans, pranayama, dhyana, mantra and forms of upasana. The emptiness as an ideal of a NathaYogi is implemented in a non-dual state of mind and detachment in forms of actions.
