More than 500 years after the Buddha's death, two great centres of Buddhist ideas were established in India. Nalanda became the centre of the Hinayana - Narrow Path Buddhism and Mingar became the centre for Mahayana - Great Path Buddhism.

The Narrow Path Buddhism claimed Yoga teacher training India orthodoxy, whilst the Greater Path adopted a more liberal view of the teachings of the Buddha and also incorporated some practices not directly touched upon by the Buddha during his life. This included some indigenous Tantric practices, including Hatha Yoga Exercises.
