In the Indo-Aryan Vedic tradition, the term 'tura' तुर is first mentioned in Rigveda, meaning 'strong, powerful, distinguished, rich, power, original, primeval'. In the Iranian tradition, the Indo-Aryan term 'Tura' corresponds to the Iranian term 'Turya, Tūiriiā, Tūrā', referred to in Avesta, with the same value.
Another meaning of Sanskrit of the term tura तुर is 'fast, quick, dynamic, ready, solid' , in Turan Yoga, one aspect of practice is dynamic movement and quick transitions to other asanas, integrity of practice.
Tura in the Indo-Iranian languages were called the people of Shaka/Shakya (Saka), they are the people of Tak (or Dahae, that is, the people of the sacred dragon).
It was believed that the people of the Tura were associated with horse, therefore in Sanskrit the term Turaga तुरग, derived from Tura - also called horses. The term 'Turaga' in the designation of horses is mentioned for the first time in Mahabharata.
Turan-yoga itself in India is sometimes also called Turushaka-yoga or Turushka-yoga तुरुष्ककर्पूर - which is translated from Sanskrit as 'strong primeval yoga of the Shaka people'. The people of shaka in India were mainly represented in the Kshatriya varna, so Turan yoga is also known as kshatriya yoga.
The people of the Tura (Turushka, Shaka, Turushaka) were first mentioned in northern India in Kashmir.
According to the Brockhaus and Efron Encyclopedic Dictionary, Turushak is the name of the ancient Indian royal dynasty that reigned in Northern India (in Kashmir, Kabulistan, etc.) and which had the so-called "Turanian" or "Indo-Scythian" origin.
Tura were associated in India with the dynasty Takshak or the serpent dynasty (Takshaka - the name of one dragon) - one of the oldest royal dynasties in India.
Takshaka literally from Sanskrit means, 'the sacred dragon of the Shaka people'. In the Iranian tradition, the sacred dragon Tak is known as Daha, or Ajdaha.
At present Tak is the name of some modern Hindu clans or clans, occurring, according to some historians of India, from the ancient name of Takshak, who belonged to the “serpent family” (Nagavansha). The same names (Takshaka and Nagavansha) were carried by the ancient dynasty, which played a prominent role in ancient India. Its descendants are Tak, the ancestors of the royal dynasty Gujarat a, who ruled before the annexation of the peninsula to the empire Akbar. Name so are other genera. In the Central Doab and Lower Rogilkhonde there are Rajputs Tank; another clan bearing this name lives near Jamu, not far from the intended site of the ancient capital Takshashil or Taxila.
Takshak (Dahae, Saka, Tura) came to India under the leadership of Shishunaga, who took the throne of Pandu. His dynasty reigned for 360 years and ended with King Bikyat. Another dynasty of the same origin was founded by Chandragupta (see), an imaginary opponent of Alexander the Great, and existed 137 years, pushing 10 rulers. From the dynasty Tak the leaders of the Nagwansi in Ramgurh, who retained in their coat of arms the image of the glasses of the cobra snake, retain their origin. From their nominal epithet Naga (Sk. Nâga - snake) derives the name of the city and region of Nagpur (pur - city).
Turan yoga among the people of Shaka, Tura, and Tak (Dahae) was known as the family practice of warrior yoga. Turan-yoga was mainly transmitted in varna kshatriyas from father to son according to family tradition.
Famous representatives of Turan Yoga
According to the Vedic tradition, the Turan Yoga or Yoga of the Kshatriyas (warriors) was engaged before his preaching activity Sidhart Gautam Shakyamuni (Shakyamuni means “from the clan Shakya sage”), better known in the world as Buddha. The basics of Turan yoga were transmitted to Siddhart according to family tradition by his father, since the Sidharth clan among his people, Shaka, belonged to the Kshatriya (warrior) varna.
Another Indian sage named Bodhidharma, a representative of the Kshatriya varna (warriors), transferred the fundamentals of his clan's Turan yoga as a practice further to the monasteries of Tibet and ancient China, where later martial arts of the East arose from asanas like kempo, wushu, gunfu and others.
In China, one of the adherents of Turan yoga was Chen Haun, who lived in the 19th century. It is the practice of the Chen Heun School that is currently mostly known as the complex of asanas turan yoga in hatha.
