Litteraly – “which allows you to cross”

yoga of liberation;

There are two kinds of taraka-yoga in yoga texts: purva-taraka or "samanaska" which is using vikalpa, archetypal thoughtform and uttara-taraka or "amanaska" – yoga of thoughtlessness. The first uses some supports for mind, various upayas for the practice; the second one is the absence of any support or methods.
